In case you’re wondering, I’m the one on the left.

And, yes, that’s who you think it is on the right.

I was eighteen.

She was not.

This was one of those once-in-a-lifetime dreamed about moments.

There are a few things I tend to keep to myself. My once ga-ga level admiration of Dolly Parton is one of them.

From her, I learned two meaningful things (as the fashion sense was short-lived):

1. Dream big

2. The art of the quip


Last summer a friend tried to convince me of the merits of a comfy bra. “Honey,” I said, “if it hasn’t any underwire, I might as well let ’em drag on the ground.”


I met her at just the right time. If I hadn’t, there’s so much I would have never tried.

Sometimes the seemingly impossible is possible.

Gravity or otherwise.
