I’ve been working on BARB for all of 2017 thus far. BARB has made me so happy. I feel creative. I feel involved in the world. I feel interested again. I’m owning my creativity. And I’m loving it. I thank you for reading this. For being a part of it. For sharing. For commenting. For supporting me. Your support? It’s everything.

Natalie Merchant: “I remember when I started in the early Eighties, I was always the only girl in the room. Not just the musicians, but all of the tech people every time I went in the studio, record companies. As the Nineties progressed, I found that there were more and more women sound engineers and there were more women musicians – in my band, I had a female guitar player. It just felt like the Nineties was a time when there was a shift. I finally had an A&R person who was a woman. My lawyer was a woman. My publicist was a woman. I was consciously moving in that direction.”
Isabel Huppert: “I don’t feel old and asking women about ageing is very negative. It doesn’t concern me; it’s other people’s problem, not mine.”
