what makes you feel wonderful?
Writing, creating, plotting & planning, loud music!
what makes you feel beautiful?
A strategically-dropped compliment from someone I have a crush on.
if you are having a sub-par day, what do you do or say to make yourself feel good again again?
I turn up good music & either dance or hoop around my living room; I do a nice, long ashtanga yoga session; I write; I sing; I talk to my friends or I use EFT (a self-healing technique). Sometimes I do a combination of these things. & when I’m home in New York City, I throw on shoes & sunglasses & go for a long walk. Walking around the city is an amazing antidote to a day that’s dragging.

Everything. Really, everything.

Sitting really close to someone I really like & doing anything. Talking, dreaming, laughing.
if you had to make your friend a cheer-up box what are 5 items you would put in it?
1. A fortune — maybe from a cookie, maybe from a mechanical fortune-teller, maybe one I made myself.
2. A letter telling them exactly why I love them.
3. A copy of one of my favourite books.
5. Cute knickers.
Everything would be colour-coordinated, of course.
