I couldn’t have written a better tribute for Helena Hann-Basquiat. Please read Katie’s post and all the many, many reasons you should support Helena in her Kickstarter program (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jimsquires/memoirs-of-a-dilletante-volume-one).
The one, the only Helena Hann-Basquiat, everyone’s favorite dilettante
Have you ever met someone who made you nod your head and say, yes? Or, who phrased the jumble of letters and words that form our language in such a way that you could not help but grin and smile?
Helena Hann-Basquiat, everyone’s favorite dilettante, made me nod, grin and laugh from the moment I met her. Remarkably, she met my nerdy persistence with enthusiasm. Though she may be right in that I simply decided we were going to be friends, what made me stick around her site was the way she made words come to life.
Since meeting her, her words have made me smile. They have made me cringe with trepidation, and flip electronic pages as fast as my mouse could click them in anticipation. Her words have frightened me, and they have made me cry.
