Ruby Slippers (nee Nia Goldman) passed into spirit when Taurus was in retrograde Mars. Ruby, known for her tireless support of the arts, started out in humble beginnings as a caged Go-Go dancer. From performance artist to professional party It girl, friends say her wit, charm, and remarkable networking skills, could have elected her President. In a recent interview, Ms. Slippers commented, "My only talent is remembering people's names."
The year she stopped eating and working and talking, she devolved, draping cloth over mirrors, not brushing her teeth. She went from Emily Dickinson to Sylvia Plath to Anne Sexton, reading their work over and over, copying their words. A day came. She reached for a pencil... cracked egg, hot griddle. Her first poem filled two pages. She now eats oatmeal and wanton soup from the Chinese restaurant.
