Funny you should ask! I’m the Director of Host Experience & Operations at Revel.
The serious and the mundane and oh, um, menopause. (I’m awake most nights between 3 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., but it doesn’t really faze me. (I like to think that I’m “keeping the night company.”)
The ability to feel mostly at home wherever I am in the world, in the company of whoever I’m with. I’m endlessly curious. And I really like humans.
Auctionninja.com. (Who knew I was an online estate sale-obsessive?)
One of my favorite Googly things do is insert fragments of poems I’ve adored for an instant reminder of their every stanza. So the other day I tapped “bride married to amazement” into my phone and voila—out popped the totality of Mary Oliver’s “When Death Comes.” So very gratifying. (And please someone read this at my funeral.)
The Wild Edge of Sorrow: Rituals of Renewal and the Sacred Work of Grief, by Francis Weller. (Every word feels essential.)
I showed up to a Revel Holiday lunch today wearing a vintage bathrobe which I pretended was a coat. (My feeling—and we’ll call it an over-40 beauty hack—is that if you hold your head up high and sally forth with the slightest of swaggers, you can get away with wearing anything.)
