Since last we met I have had some big life changes. I have taken a full time job as a Sous Chef at this freakin awesome place. I found out I get to perform at some of the coolest places in the Berkshires this Summer. I am joining a roller derby team. I am thankful for all of these things.
Also- one of the most important fells in the world to me passed into the the sky this week.
This is what I wrote to him on the day he moved on…
Last night one of the greatest men and most vital artists moved on. Haskell Fitz-Simons was not only one of the dearest friends I have known, but also a beautiful and generous teacher, an amazing collaborator, and someone who helped form me as a human and an artist. I will never forget parades, shows, trips to the ASPCA, lunches, or just sitting with you and speaking of great books. You were my hero, and I will miss you. I love you, Hak.
So it’s been a whirlwind. This week. These weeks. I am in rehearsal with four of the greatest girls and I am thankful every day. I am going to pay a lot more attention- as a friend of mine reminded me that I should stick with this blog thing. Also I have a lot more recipes now.
A world of love,
