Jennifer RobertsRed tinged brown curls cascade down from a square jawed head, a priestess topknot. She, if anyone, is a good witch. She exudes a personal power, womanly warmth that is truly ethereal. Just being in her presence is moving.
She is one of Howard's favourite people. He introduced us.
She's a mid-30s watercolour teacher at a school in San Francisco. We mat while I was still at Wired, and developed a fast friendship.
She's quick to empathy. A day with her is constantly relieving.
Whenever I ask her for something, a drink, use of the phone, a hair tie, she says "what's mine is yours" and she means it.
She paints sweeping, teeming jungle watercolour scenes. It was at an art opening of hers that I met Nadia.
