Arundhati Roy

Indian writer

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget… another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

Dana Delany

A friend of mine sent me the link to this interview with the incredibly beautiful and talented actress Dana Delany. You can read more about her life and her work here, but the reason why I was sent this link is because Isabel knew I’d be happy to know about one more childless woman who seems to be having a great life!

Dana is 60 years old (can you believe it? I am still in shock) and said her secret for looking young is, and I quote: ‘I’ve never been married, I don’t have kids, I do yoga everyday and I drink a lot of wine’. I am sure there is much more to it than she reveals, but, hey, why don’t we try it ourselves?

There is a yoga course waiting for me starting next week, and a half-full bottle of wine in my fridge. Off I go, ladies. Wish me luck and please let me know if this works for you too, hu? The comments section is open!
