with Joanna C. Valente
The last thing that made you smile
I saw a pug being walked on the way to work in Midtown on W 29th & Broadway. Dogs are the best medicine.
Other things that make me smile: hugs, poetry, jazz, finding cheap records, going to museums, laughing, riding a ferris wheel, beach days, pie, more pie, a good coffee, friends, walking, love (even when it’s hard).
Old secrets: I used to play sports. I was on a basketball team for two years and on a softball team for about five.
I used to be good at Street Fighter.
A current secret: I’m not cool. Like, I’m really, really not. I cry to a lot of movies, like Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
