I just had a miscarriage, and my mom flew out to Chicago from California to hold my hand at the hospital and cook Guatemalan comfort food for me and my husband. We bought a vintage spice rack at a yard sale a couple of days after the D&C and painted all the lids of the glass bottles turquoise, then painted the spice names on them in Spanish (cardamom=grana del paraiso). I cried like a baby when her week-long visit was up. Being an only child of a single mom can be a special kind of poignant.
I did a show with Cheyenne about 10 years ago, before he moved to NYC. He is absolutely stunning in person, and a kind, generous, humble and all-around delightful human being to boot. It gives me such joy to see him so successful and loved by so many.
This was lovely. Thank you.
