WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO CELEBRATE BEING FAB OVER 40?
I’ve been through a major shift in identity over the last few years and I wanted to mark this evolution somehow.
WHAT DID YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE?
I felt sexy and powerful. I loved the creative storytelling aspect of it.
HOW HAS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR BODY CHANGED
I feel like it is constantly in flux. One minute I feel at home, the next I feel like my own body is a stranger.
WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED TO APPRECIATE MORE AS YOU
Quality dark chocolate and unscheduled time.
WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU OFFER OTHER WOMEN?
It is really hard in this youth-obsessed culture to feel comfortable aging
as a woman. Remember to give yourself grace during those times when
you cannot love yourself. Have compassion for her struggle just like you would for a friend.

Go kiss a girl
WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO OR FAVORITE QUOTE?
"You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves."
