Two-part question: What do you hope people learn for themselves about beauty? What have you learned?
Accept yourself and enjoy your smooth legs while you are young, girlies. And also wear sunscreen. I did not. I like the feeling of lying in the sun. I would still lie in the sun, but I’d put on the screen beforehand, instead of the baby oil. Heed my words.
What is the most beautiful thing you ever created? What made it beautiful?
I recently made a chocolate flourless cake. I was scared shitless to make it because I don’t cook or bake much, though I love to eat. I decided to try my hand at it for a big family dinner I was invited to. It came out perfectly. It looked great and it was delicious. Everyone loved it and, I think, was surprised that I actually made it rather than bought it which my reputation generally leans towards. I felt proud and was glad I challenged myself. I suppose I felt beautiful on the inside.
