Right barring the women I know intimately (my mother that force of nature, my sweet Nan, wise Grandmother, brilliant sisters, aunts, cousins, and my fierce girl friends) all of whom I could rhapsodize about for hours on end there is at least 100 great women that has had a great deal in the making of me.
Here now from my heart are the first 2 of the 100 and I pray you will receive them well.
Ms. Dell'Orefice had a life you would not believe she was brought up in near poverty and even lived for awhile in foster homes. She was married three time all of them ended in divorced.
In th 80's and 90's poor Carmen lost her fortune in the stock market and had to start all over only to be taken again in 2008 by Bernie Madoff and his ponzi scheme. She still works has a model. I adore her for her spirit and grace.
Grace Mendoza Jones born May 19, 1948 still stunnig at 61
She is from my native land Jamaica. Ms Jones is singer, model, actress and the most outrageous person alive. Did you know that Grace once went to a party in the nude and when asked why she did it she said, 'You are only young once,' can you imagine it?
When Grace was a model in the 70's she and her then roomate Jerry Hall use to fequent Studio 54 where she met Andy Warhol, she became his muse and she swears until today his end was an unnatural one. Oh and she was recently engaged to music producer Ivor Guest a gentleman more than twenty years her junior.
I hope you are all happy and well,
