Her name is Priscilla. She told me her name when I was 16 years old. However, it took me another 20 years to learn her language and to realize her power and beauty. She’s bold and beautiful. A force. A life force. I’ve learned how to listen to her. She’s never wrong. Never. People have always counseled me to “follow your heart”. As you can see – she is my “heart”. I follow her.

There’s a really great scene in the movie, “My Best Friend’s Girlfriend” with Kate Hudson that I will never forget. I don’t remember the specifics of it, but Kate was in the bathroom crying over the man in the movie and a woman sees her. The woman says something like, “Listen to your pussy. It always knows.”

And this is how I live my life.
