ABOUT THE BOOK
Through delicious and dark, scintillating and salacious true tales of planned and accidental intersections with the exotic and quixotic, Durham pits her real self against her ideal self in a lifelong journey as serpentine as the Mobius strip her father made for her more than seven decades ago.
On stage and off, Durham creates and is created by story. Raven spirit tattoos on both shoulders, wanderlust in her eyes, she danced in ceremony with tribal Kachin women, chanted "Free Gaza" from aboard the seized Audacity of Hope ship, was cured by a Voodoo priest in a Haitian cemetery, slogged through the tempestuous lands' end at Tierra del Fuego, and breathlessly summitted Kilimanjaro. Everywhere this around-the-world traveler wandered, she chased the ghosts of her own ignorance and arrogance, culled clarity from confusion, and dug herself out from the crushing numbness of defeat.
Durham unabashedly pulls back the curtain on loves lost and found and on a life lived richly and openly amid fair fields and foreign wars, in places sacred and profane. Her incurable optimism gives inspiration and voice to the struggles of women worldwide, empowers those of us who feel derailed by a world out of control, and frees us to open the door to love.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
For more than three decades, Durham promoted New Mexico-based artists as the hands-on owner of contemporary art galleries in Santa Fe and New York. In 2012, the New Mexico Museum of Art acquired her extensive gallery archives. A prolific writer and public speaker, she has been a guest lecturer or workshop presenter at Brigham Young University, the University of Wisconsin, Ohio Wesleyan University, Yale University, the Sundance Institute, the College of Santa Fe, Santa Fe Community College, and the New Mexico Museum of Art. For her seventieth birthday, Durham circumnavigated the world in seventy days, meeting indigenous women, educators, artists, entrepreneurs, and peace activists, and planting "Seeds of Peace" in gardens, schoolyards, and parks in South Africa, Lesotho, Madagascar, Thailand, Myanmar, and Hawaii. She, her partner, two cats, a dog, four chickens, and a pond full of fish live in an old adobe house in rural New Mexico. Durham's two children are both professional chefs. Her granddaughter is a young scholar.
