Dallas is one of the profiles I got really stressed about writing, she means so much to me it’s hard to do her justice in a little blurb. Dallas is my soul sister. We have lived in many of the same places at the same time and existed right next to each other but didn’t actually meet till I saw her on her long-board at SUNY Purchase my first year of college. Before we met, we danced on the same small stage while light beams and lasers shot through the fire around us and Benni Benassi pumped bass into a crowd of circus ravers. We even unknowingly lived around the corner from each other in Venice Beach, Santa Barbara, Seattle, Arizona, on and on obviously we were supposed to be friends. I’ve watched Dallas go from rocker, to activist, cowgirl, raver, hippie and now un-boxable and un-stoppable. She is truly another creature, a fiery earthy force, she is able to move through the world in a way most dream of, fluidly and magically. She attracts beauty and mystery everywhere she goes. Last time I saw her was at the Rainbow Gathering in Washington state and the entire day, everywhere we walked, every flower child grown up knew her and had some gift to offer her. The two of us spend our last night together puking and convinced we were going to die from eating bad brownies. She has lived with me many times at my Brooklyn casa in between her journeys and is always inspiring and grounding. She has wisdom that comes from someplace else, and reminds me of a an elven goddess from the lord of the rings but with crazier slightly sluttier and brighter colored clothes and jewelry. I love that we are able to always be best friends even though we live such different and far away lives. Someone write a book about this lady. Creative mama making the world more glittery and filled with fairy homes and rainbow confetti.
