I aspire to live life by the seat of my pants but I often times find myself hanging by my shirt collar. I love to build with my hands, you know, roll up your sleeve and get really dirty in it! That’s why I sew like a crack addict.
They say: She who dies with the most fabric wins!
I say: She who dies with the most fabric- still dies. . . Where did you say that estate sale was again?
Some things that make me happy are my civil and political rights, LIVE THEATER and I especially like finding point where theater becomes catalist for human rights awareness and social change. I love Pheonix Dragon Pearl, Pu’erh or Genmicha tea, Cashmere (sweaters or fabric… of course), linen, silk, Liberty of London textiles, finding ways to switch globalization from Free trade to Fair trade ideology, hand-me-down clothes, thrift stores, fresh powder tracks (grew up in Tahoe), the “cousins” brat pack, honesty, comedy, Bayna 5, a really good conversation, organic greens ;), The Sandusky massage (those hot rocks get me every time), live Chopin or Joplin before breakfast, lazy days with my husband Dave and citizenship in Black Rock City.
I AM A VERY LUCKY GIRL!!
I was raised by hippies in Lake Tahoe, California (I went to my first Dead Show at ten). My mother shutters at the word hippie on this blog because she would never wear tie dye and does not like the Dead. BUT she hate capitalism, makes her own soap, lotions, mayo, cleaning products, wool socks, christmas presents (the list goes on). She recycles everything, likes world music and wear lots of silver rings. I had to explain to her that the rest of the world prolly lables that as “hippie”. As a teenager I would make clothes for myself and friends and even consigned some one-of-a-kind creations. At eighteen, I moved to Seattle to go to the Art Institute of Seattle for fashion design. I recieved a degree in 1999. I have dabbled in this and that, eventually returning to school at the University of Washington and focusing in theatrical design. In June 2008 I got a BA in Dramatic Arts and a minor in Human Rights. I applied to Law School but did not get in…. those bastards!
