The sofa in my dressing room I sleep on at dinner break with the Gees Bend quilt on it.
My dressing table
A very 60s beaded necklace that Catherine Keener gave me when we did “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding” this Summer. It hangs on my mirror and brings me luck.
This is a rock from Africa that Eve Ensler gave me before the NY opening. It breaks open and inside the crystal and mica glows. She saw it as a metaphor for an artist being broken open by the creative work. This is a good thing. I see it that way too and so I have it on my dresser–a reminder to stay hungry and a reminder of dearest Eve who at this moment is about to open City of Joy in Eastern Congo where raped and traumatized women can come to heal and learn skills.
