Today is November 8, 2016. Election Day. I haven’t been sleeping well for weeks. Tossing and turning, I feel the negativity spinning out of control. Trump has brought to the surface everything ugly about this country. Angry racists, bigots and misogynists…..to all of these, he has given license to hate. “Make America Great Again”…should really be “Make America Hate Again.”
I am going to hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln
Currently residing in Los Angeles, originally from the east coast. As a child, my family moved quite a few times for my father's job as a professor. Initially, I went to school at F.I.T. in NYC, with the dream of becoming a fashion designer. That dream, sadly, went sideways, and I went far off of my path. But, if all roads lead to Rome, my Rome was NYC. This time, I worked as a scenic artist, window dresser, prop and wardrobe stylist amongst various sundry jobs. After a few years, I relocated to the west coast, which involved a multitude of bumps, bruises, and setbacks. In LA, I finally made my way to work as a professional makeup artist for well over a decade. Those are the highlights, but I've taken many detours along the way. It's been quite a ride so far, and it's not over yet. So many stories to tell, so little time!
