Make Your Own Luck

“I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life–and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”- Georgia O’Keeffe I have a girl-crush of long-standing on the famously cranky Ms. O’Keeffe and her striking art. Check out Joan Didion’s book of essays, The White Album, for one prickly…
