"Okay. Heaven as Olympic spot. Koreatown, Los Angeles. Gwendolyn Brooks did stark naked. I stared into her be spectacled eyes. Miss Brooks showed me how to tend to myself by scrubbing dead skin with a coarse washcloth. Rinsing the body is Detroit is down a common drain. My flesh was taught loose and dying. Even in Paradise, I was dying. At first, the surprise to me. Oh, the capsized boat of the body Wanda Coleman side. We keep sailing even when we believe we're sure. Coleman drifted to sleep on a heated Jade floor. Clasping my spa provided robe. I lay on my side beside her. Do the dead dream? I wonder to myself? Wrong question. Coleman muttered. I remembered sleeping beside my mother. Touching her nightgown lightly as if a gesture could restore the cord that in the beginning tethered us. As if I smelled her death in the satin scarf, keeping the plastic curlers in place. Or in the vaseline glassing her arms. In childhood, I pine for my mother, though she was there. Here in the afterlife, I had no mind to search for her. I was freed from a loss that haunted me even before it occurred. Gwendolyn Brooks hung the wordless song that stripped me of all longing. I am tied the robe stiff belt and walked amongst the nude women. My skin brush smooth and silent. I was ordinary and motherless. Because I was not alone, my nakedness felt unremarkable. I didn't miss my mother. I didn't miss her. It's such an incredible poem. There's so many strands coming together. You know, a sisterhood, mortality, the meaning of nudity, the way our mothers are always inside our bodies and we inside theirs. Yeah, and that longing to, let me see. In childhood, I pine for my mother, though she was there. Here in the afterlife, I had no mind to search for her. I was freed from a loss that haunted me even before it occurred. Later in the poem you write, I was ordinary and motherless. I think for women, especially, the foundational part of our self image, the way we relate to our body, comes so often from our mother. And I was wondering if that's true for you and if so, how was that? Definitely. I think there is that kind of mind boggling, facts that we are like in our mothers who were in their mothers who were in their mothers like on and on and on and on. I mean, I don't know. I can remember being the size of wrapping my arm around my mother's leg. You know? Yes. And looking and looking at her body and today it's like looking at her and seeing myself in the future. I feel like it's hard not to think about all of those things. In a regular interaction with her. And it feels like some kind of consolation to know that no matter if my mom is living or dead, I marked by her. And my physicality and my obviously in the way that, you know, I was raised and gestures and so yeah, it's a really central relationship. And I think it comes up in the book and a lot of different ways. Also just like in the poem listening my mother's back like where I'm really seeing her. I can remember being a child and seeing the moles on her body and being like, wow, there's so many moles. And now I have so many small. Yeah, it's yes, it's aging. Aging body. I also feel like often we model the way our mothers relate to their own body. If they are filled with shame, we are more likely to be filled with shame. If they feel free in their bodies, there is at least a good starting point for us to feel more free in ours. Right. Yeah, I wouldn't say that. The relationship is so automatic. I don't think so. How was it for you? I think she critiqued her body a lot. I think that's still the case, but I think it's less so now. But I thought about this a lot. Because I was a dancer. I grew up from four or 5 through being in my early 20s. So I had to think a lot about body image. And I honestly think the way that I feel embodied in the way that I feel about my body, which is largely positive. Has not to do with the dance world. But more to do with the fact that I just don't consume a lot of images. Like I'm a very low tech person. I don't read the glassy magazines that I don't watch the things on the Internet or TV. Like I just don't. And so I really only have images of women's bodies from real life. From the moments in ballet studio, from the gym, the YMCA, you know, bedside Brooklyn from this spot in Los Angeles. And they're not, whatever that other version is, they're just not that. They are like dimple then they have cellulite and they were like regular bodies. Yeah. And so I don't expect

<Speech_Male> Although former left <Speech_Male> scant record of <Speech_Male> his convictions about <Speech_Male> race, his <Speech_Male> paintings of black <Speech_Male> people show his

"Of pros where you can't really escape but yeah people usually laugh when i say the title. 'cause they're like oh ha ha ha. That's so funny. But then they hear the story behind it and then they hear the poem and they're like oh no no no no And the story behind it. Maybe i should say is that i was invited to do this. Like author day at a local school was a catholic school which may be matters to the story catholic private school and lady. Who invited me was all cool until i sent her link to my website. I was like oh well. You're making about me. And she came back like maybe an hour later and she said oh. I think you're not going to be a good fit because of subject matter and i was like first of all. I'm a teacher. Like how do you think. I don't know how to choose poems for kids. First of all like you're questioning my professionalism for one for to what content exactly are we shielding our children from. That's where the previous conversation comes into play about. When do we teach kids about these things. When they learn a lot of people. I think would rather they never learn about politics about people being murdered. I always tell people. I was five when i first experienced racism and i think even younger than that when i first learned what racism was if i can experience that and some people are even younger than five if i can experience that as a black child every other child has the capacity to learn about it. Learning about is not the same as experiencing it and these people who are going all the school board meeting saying we can't teach critical race theory blah blah. They're not understanding that. There are children already traumatized at a young age. I into a room and there's trauma there waiting for me. No matter how old i am and the same is true as an adult now people once they learn what i write about like in this case with this poem. That was a traumatic experience for me. I've never been disinvited to anything because in my world everybody knows that i care so much about everybody. I care about children. I care about poetry. And that i'm always going to do my best job and for this person to decide based on either the fact that i was black. I don't think she knew who i was. She looked at the website. And you could see my face you know and read some of my poems and she. I was scared that i was going to talk about race. Perhaps she didn't even ask me to just made an assumption just like this woman who came up on you and your dog you know. She made an assumption that was harmful so no to answer your question. Nobody has left at the poem and it has happened to friends of mine before like they'll read a poem that's like not funny it's about race or whatever and there's people in the audience giggling but that goes back not to be this person but it really goes back to reparations to. I should be able to read a poem about my experience. And you not take it personally. There's there's a limit to meet two people coming up after reading and just being so like. Oh my gosh. I'm so broken down by this blah blah blah. And like yeah. I'm glad that you're broken down. Because i mean you're experiencing emotion but can also consider what i felt have to write that poem. It's not about you and your ears right now. I'm trying to tell you a truth and then you can go home to your own space and do all of that work yourself. I'm not here to do that work for you. I don't know how this became me talking about my frustrations with people at readings. But that's where we are. We're here. i'm so glad that you're saying that. And you know. I felt reading your poems. Like the toll of these poems you know you're addressing you're grappling with so many difficult difficult So so much atrocity and telling that story telling detail i was thinking about you know course how difficult it is to read but how you have embodied that and the toll at that takes on you as a as a poet as a person reliving that embodying and just that is so outrageous that that person disinvited you in that way and it reminds me of things that we experience at poetry foundation we've made recommendations for example to include a we real cool gwendolyn brooks's great poem in curriculum for children and it being rejected for being too how to dark or real cool. Yes yes i mean it is but like come on and this just in the last couple of years you know so like wet wendy west. Stop when do we. When when do we listen now exclamation.

"Faces. Yes i have definitely seen that. I have also seen the opposite Or i guess. Maybe proving this. I want to look at it but the landlord has often been the reason why lesbian bar has closed whether that's because it's now a new owner and they don't want that anymore or whether they're trying to demolish the building and build. Something new was so often happens in new york or whether they just change their mind and decide. This is a liability and want to get rid of it. I think Not always true that the place sort of continues because the landlord is nice but that might be one of the reasons why you know a certain location is able to continue longer than the other. I would say for one of the current lesbian bars. That still exists Lisa g has talked about henrietta hudson. And that's one of the reasons why she's been able to stay there for so long. That bar has been there for thirty years now and she keeps getting long term leases from the owner That has allowed her to stay. Where other places have just been priced out like crazy so when we started talking about the the bar scene at the the lesbian bar scene in new york city we started off with a group like tea rooms and meeting places that not uncommonly seemed to have sort of a an intellectual bent to them or a political bent where people would go there and discuss political issues and things of that. Then we started to move into a situation where you had more entertainment like the cabaret situation. And then now you're into The fifties and sixties. Where you have this kind of Butch fan dichotomy all of which occurred before the real onset of the feminist movement. Once we hit the the seventies and you started to see a little bit more gay activism a little. Bit more feminism. Do we see a change.

"Yes so it's a an iconic photo And is clearly just dripping with lesbianism. So if that wasn't an advertisement for a lesbian bar. I don't know what it was and it looks like to me from what i've seen. I've seen those pictures as well. It seems like it kind of fits with the era anyway but it seems like it was a little bit of a dressier place and by a dressier by today's standards where people wouldn't go in there just looking rumpled in whatever you in a looks like they were wearing neither nice slacks and a jacket or in a nice sweater. Something like that in presenting themselves more properly Which is not necessarily an image that you have of what a lesbian bar would be today today. You have an entirely different picture. And the reason. I bring that up is because a lot of the people that i've spoken to They have this preconceived notion that lesbians always since day. One have run around. In in a faded jeans birkenstocks an oversized t shirts or something. And the reason i bring it out is because that whole era everything really from a the beginning of the twentieth century to the mid twentieth century. Most of the clubs other than a few scattered. Men's men's bars were a little bit more proper. You went dressed up you went. You know in a address if you were so inclined or nice pair of slacks or jacket. You know little bit more. Proper attire was different completely different environment than what we see now in the marcy for the most part i would disagree with that statement. Let okay i can see. I liked you through club people in all states of dress. I'm sure i. I think that's its own little mini paper in itself like the lesbian attire through the ages. That certainly in the twenty s. It was the bohemian look hidden everybody was android janice and had their hair short..

"Little thing in their own little pocket of the world. I think they had sort of different impacts. Which is why. I pulled them out as examples. Polly's wasn't necessarily identified as a you know space for the lgbtq community however they identified them salsa that point. It's mainly important this history for the meetings of the heterodox club which was a group of early thinkers All women from all different backgrounds. Many of whom have been to be out about their own sexuality and lesbianism as you recall it today. So you know women from that group came to that place but it wasn't necessarily because of the place it was because of the group of the neighborhood and you know these are all in greenwich village. Nice time which of course then continues to be a center for lgbtq life through today. But i think maybe the other two were a little bit more explicit about their gay clientele or their gayness. You wanna put it that way. And i think some of my information might not be completely accurate about eve adams tearoom. There's a gentleman coming out with a book specifically about eve adams and i a very interested to read it. He's done much more in depth research than i've done in my small injury but at least according to legends. There was a sign in the window of eve adams tearoom that said men are admitted but not welcome and we definitely know that Her books that had very explicit lesbian content were banned and that's part of the reason why the space was shut down So many ways that was the most explicitly lesbians face also the shortest duration. So i'm not sure if you can say it has the most impact i. It didn't live back then then unfortunately. There's no buddy alive from that time that i could interview so it's a little bit harder to tell you know. Then like the seventy s when clearly like the duchess and the sahara were the most popular places. And everybody went there. You know. I can't necessarily say that about that time especially since it. Was you know the twenties and thirties for a little bit more open than the next few decades. But it still wasn't something. People bragged about or advertise about This is a gay space. Come here we want to. You want you want you here like it's absolutely that much underground at has been one of the biggest challenges of this project for me You're on the ground in new york and have the ability to physically visit the spaces where these places were. I'm doing my research from florida and is not convenient especially during the past year when you couldn't go anywhere to travel and do that and i found that with with gay bars. In general it was difficult to find information prior to probably the mid sixties because everything was underground and one way or another. They're warrant a big national publications that they advertised in there weren't social media type Platforms where you could put picture. If people didn't carry cameras around and photograph each other in a in a bar that was kind of taboo and the whatever ephemera or Know souvenirs or anything that was saved from. Those days was probably destroyed by the family when that person died. Because who would want to keep you know and gladys's lesbian memorabilia for the next three generations it just you know so..

"Writing there it did not say mad. Hatter outside the building is said down the rabbit hole obviously a reference to lewis carroll but my understanding and it was backwards. it was mirror image tax. it wasn't But i also understand that. The inside of the bar was full of quotes about madness. There were different sayings or quotes painted on the walls that had to do with with madness and such with. and there's also images from the original illustrations of Allison wonderland so that's one of the images. I have in my thesis. I'm not sure if it made it into the video that you watched but remember i find i can find it though i can send it to you. I think Yeah it's from the museum of the city of new york. So i'm not sure about the the rights of sharing it but It's a great image anyway. also another thing. That was kind of interesting about you. Were talking about jimmy. The woman who is the owner of the bar and was open about her female partner but in keeping with the times at least for a brief time she was also married to a man. Yes and that man was hendrik. Willem van loon who owned the village. Bookshop across the street at his book shop is known for having the door to the bookshop signed by famous people who came to that location but he was a regular across the street at the header. So that was kind of interesting. That was i think his second of three or four wives so obviously neither one of them were very committed to the relationship so in the twenties in the from one thousand nine hundred ten to nineteen twenty. You had several of these kind of tea rooms that were frequented by women that we would now. Probably if i as lesbians in new york city one other was called polly's And the other one was eve adams. Tea room Do you have any idea out of those. You know those three which one might have been the most popular or you know. Have the biggest impact on the on the community. There were were they all just kind of.

Lgbt historic sites project. so welcome to the show wendelin. Thank you for having me.

It's not something i would expect. The average person with their eyes set on architecture to be doing as a master's thesis just to clarify the master's thesis was for my historic preservation degree. So i i had two degrees architecture and historic preservation So this was part of the preservation work but even for preservation. It's an unusual topic. I will say that preservation as a field is broadening its scope it started as preserve penn station preserve the beautiful buildings that are in danger of disappearing. And there's still a lot of that and still a lot of you know houses. A founding fathers and things like that but The story is starting to expand as in many fields We are starting to tell deeper stories and more stories. So you know if you have a historic house museum for example the story of its gay occupant. Maybe was never told. And now it's starting to be told or if you have a house of a slave owner. The stories of the slaves are starting to told things like that. So the field is expanding. And i see my work as part of the expansion of this field. And i very lucky to have many wonderful allies in this work in new york and certainly It's a place where the idea of historic preservation has a field is growing quickly. So we're not so out of the answering. Were you surprised when you started delving into the topic. That's you're going to find record of lesbian gathering spaces in new york city that reached back over one hundred years and also just to clarify. I studied lesbian bars. So i limited my scope to what i considered a bar for lesbians which was my definition was a space that the majority of the time served mostly women who identified either as lesbian are loving other women. Obviously these terms changed throughout the decades So to clarify the spaces that i found that are sort of further back before the nineteen thirties. I've labeled as proto lesbian bars. So i see them as spaces that allowed for lesbian bars to come into existence but the first lesbian bar the way i've defined. It seems to come a little bit later in the twentieth century around thirties forties The very first one i could find was in san francisco and i believe the late twenties but in new york at any rate the first one is from the thirties. So yes it is Almost one hundred years of lesbian bars but my my history goes back a little bit further to understand how the spaces could even exist and that was about the time line. I expected for this history. I actually expected to find even less material than i did for that far back. Because i knew that this was a purposefully hidden history that has been suppressed for majority of the twentieth century. So the materials that i did find. Were very exciting. And i definitely want to delve further into that early part of the century. Because there's the least amount amount of information available..

America is is a fashionable position for some on the left. We have the latest in this with Gwen berry who was at the. Aki is at the olympics. Qualifying here and president vied let me tell you what she did i. She has expressed her her irritation at the national anthem being played when she was getting her Her bronze her bronze-medal and she's gonna be The olympic team she'll be representing the us and she did not appreciate the national anthem being played while she was getting a bronze medal. She turned her back on it and no surprise here. I'm sure for many of you. The white house is backing her. Gwen berry is a female african american athlete. This white house with jen psaki taking to the podium saying that you know they respect. She's berry is representing the us on the global stage and if she wants to disrespect america joe biden stands with her. Play the clip. I haven't spoken to the president specifically about this. But i know he's incredibly proud to be an american And has great respect for the anthem and all that it represents especially for our men and women serving in uniform and the world he would also say of course that part of that pride in our country means recognising their moments where we are as a country haven't lived up to our highest ideals and it means respecting the right of people granted to them in the constitution to peacefully protest so they respected they. Pack it up now no condemnation here. Of course what should be about this congressman dan crenshaw of texas a former navy seal and kerr member of congress a. He has a pretty clear view. What he thinks should should happen out for this athlete gwen berry who's representing america in the other. I think i had a hammer throw is the sport so this is not a particularly well known high high level or high attendance. I should say sport. This is one of those track and field events that people can be pretty obscure and be involved in. But here's what congressman crenshaw says. He thinks should happen next. We don't anymore activists athletes you know. She should be removed from the team. The entire point of the olympic team to represent the united states of america tire point. Okay so you know it's one thing when these nba players do it okay. Five we'll just stop watching but now the olympic team and it's multiple cases of this. They should be removed that that should be. The bare minimum requirement is that you believe in the country representing the taking it a couple of levels deeper. This is the pathology that occurs when we're teaching critical race theory into our institutions because critical rates theory again basically teaches that our institutions are racists that our systems are deeply racist now..

You're butter for instance or you're obviously chocolate has to come from some place other than here but Dairy products. that sort of thing i. It seems like you would be somebody who would try to do we. Do we try to as much as we can. But we do have a lot of products that we order that that can't come. Locally are butter is a european style. Butter are chocolate comes from france and belgium. We have flour. That comes from vermont. Because i use flour. That's not needed. Someone very particular about the ingredients. We use orders. Bromate made me put it through a chemical process which changes the consistency and the the the mead of the flower in. I don't like to use any of that in any of our food. So we have no preservatives. No fillers no and it no stabilisers in any of our food. I don't use vegetable oil or vegetable shortening. What kind of oil butter we. He's a lot of butter lot of butter. So we we try to source locally as much as we can but there are certain things we can but we do have a good savory menu as well so that helps freezing vegetables. Yeah that's that's a great work. There's a lot of good food. Production going on in indiana kentucky. We got People producing whole milt actually. There's a demand for it. And it's not i don't know i don't know what the legality of it is but non-pasteurized but there's a move towards better food ingredients in. My sister. baked time caterer for years until she sold her business. And i've always been around food all my life. I respect it. A love it It's tough to find. Well made things because so much of what is out. There is mass produced and done in a stroll fashion and this is definitely craft versus industrial shows through the food craft brewery back here and you can have your own beer. We do have our own champagne. It's yours yes. I haven't bottled and labelled in grown in france and it's our big shop. Rosa bubbles in. Its from john charles in france. It's delicious have to send you home with a bottle you've got him. What can you say. It's just that i don't do well with champagne now. Last time i really drank champagne.

It's got a lot of nice restaurants and funky stuff but this this joint is off the hook gaz. You gotta come out. We're talking to gwendolyn rogers. She's talking to us and it's just amazing. It's the product of an incredible imagination. It's obviously very well intact. After however many years you've been around she is not become jaded. She's getting better. It's just so obvious. That your your vision. I mean and that's such a great privilege that you have been able to execute the vision that you had so many people have a vision. They don't know how to execute they can't get it out of their minds and they don't know how to execute it or they just don't try and turn that fear comes in and i don't have that you need to do a video on fear you could write a book just about that. Not having yes about helping people overcoming overcome their. Because you've had it before at some point every human being does and it's how you deal with it. I know. I've had to deal with and still deal with it. Sometimes but i mean all you're doing is thinking about something happening. That hasn't happened so true. Well he isn't. That kind of an amazing thing is mardi. Scholar is a is a famous disney imagineering. And i don't wanna mess up his quote but it's something that you know when you see an empty page you don't be fearful as to what you're going to write on it. Be grateful for what you get to write on it because you get a write your own story and if i had to write my own story then it doesn't get any better than that. Well i think that the summary of this makes it even more unique is you've got a spectacular environment. You've got great great customer service. You've got a great product and it's a lot of times. Do you have one of the three or maybe two of the three but to have all three kudos to use. It doesn't matter that everything could look good. But i got to keep being good.

"Monthly or whatever indianapolis magazine article that they did about you. A while back and you you moved here. You're not originally from here. Your husband is from correct. You're doing cakes out of your basement or your kid. China working out of my house for about eight years so my dining room had bags of flour and sugar and my frigerator eggs and butter and my family was not happy about. There is no food little the little business on The shark tank to the girl from south carolina. That did the same thing and it was that called. It was like dali cakes but anyway it's that same kind of thing so anybody can be in the investment business. Anybody can if they do the thing. Make cakes i mean it's it's how well you do it and the personal service and that sort of thing and so it seems like what you've done is taken what you learned from your childhood and a desire to touch people with food to give him that happy place if you will. Is that true. Yes i think so. And i think what makes the cake bake shop different than any other bakery every single cake we make here is from scratch every every single one. Every desert remake is from scratch. We make all the caramel. The salted caramels all homemade the kurds homemade the chocolate made with belgian chocolate. The chocolate cake is made with varuna french. Chocolate i use the highest quality ingredients than i can get and it shows in the product and a lot of i think a lot of restaurants would cut corners to save money and try to figure out ways to make it easier and less expensive and we don't do that and i think that that's the difference in the product so when you buy a cake here you're buying a cake that took six to eight hours to make and it's multiple teams of people that that it goes through before it finally gets into beautiful pink box with a pink ribbon and wrapped around it. And you know you've got the the team that takes the cake layers at night and they all make them from scratch and they way out all the ingredients and then we've got her Team that comes in and makes the homemade butter cream and the chocolate fudge and salted caramel and the whole shortbread.

"Welcomed at the time depre- show you just never know where we're going to turn up this week. We've gone to the cake bake shop in carmel. Indiana you ask why. The cake bake shop. You could see this place. It is like something out of alice in wonderland. It is off the hook. It is unbelievable and it's really more the story of the owner as much as it is what she's created so without further ado. I'm going to toss it over to tom and let him take it away. So the music is the mona lisa. Twins okay so we did larkin fo- last week. I'm kinda getting into the young sister deals. These girls are twins from austria. And it's like they all grew up with these parents who listen to the beatles and so they're reinterpreting this kind of music so it's kind of neat and Older guys like mayor. Listen to it because it's a new reinterpretation so anyway all right let me do the psalm. Psalm sixty three. Oh god you are my god early. Will i seek you my soul thirst for you. My flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water so i have looked for you in the sanctuary to see your power and your glory because your loving kindness is better than life. My lips shall praise you. Will i bless you. While i live i will lift up my hands in your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow in fatness in my mouth. Show praise you with joyful. So i was here about three weeks ago and staying at the carmichael hotel right around the corner and i came over here and i said well this looks kind of kind of an interesting place you know then. I saw these mushrooms out. Said and i thought wow this is really interesting and it was not open at the time. I didn't know if it was a restaurant like mushrooms growing in the their their their pink mushrooms with fairy lights on the bottom side and flowers around the bottom. They and as always when when we describe these sites i will post pictures on the website of the actual facility. And we're hoping that one day one will be in lexington and low fat jumping. Don't jump the gun. So this is in carmel. Indiana and. I looked through the window and i saw these kind of large cakes and i thought this place is unbelievable and so i just came in here and had lunch. It's exc wizardly feminine. I mean you know but it's a little bit like the greenbriar also in the way you're not been there but that's greenbrier resort not greenbrier lexington. Techno it's kind of got this thing at this. Feast of the senses and gus tori delights and things of that nature. We tend to be very pedestrian in kentucky and indiana in our in our food tastes. It's just like whatever gets you by. Well this ain't about whatever will get you by. This is a this is like delight is the right word for it. So anyway i started doing some research into the owner and founder gwendolyn and i've found that her story was pretty unique in amazing. And so let's try to get interview with her because she seemed like a fascinating person and here. We are and I'm pretty convincing now. She's so kind to be with us. So gwendolyn let's talk a little bit about how we got here and all this happened. Well that's a long story. I thought it probably. It is a very long story. So how how. I i started how i open my shop. It's up to you. You just talk about what. You're interested in Well i'm interested in food. I love food so much. My i think i'm like a lot of people that I love to make things that are beautiful. I love to eat things. That are beautiful. And i think food really fills up your soul and if you're with your family and your friends and you're enjoying that kind of food with people that you love to me. That's what life is all about. And i wanted to create a place that my family could come to. My you know that we could make hundreds of thousands of people happy every year and it's it works which is kind of amazing. It's a miracle really. It's it's a beautiful thing. I do what i love and it just paid off people. People seem to really like it. Talk about your childhood if you want to. I mean or whatever things in your growing up process sorta got you interested in that all see you know. It wasn't easy. Tell you. I mean mostly if i just brief over it i i raised myself really I have mother. That has now passed away but i loved her dearly but she was not. She was not the most attentive mother. I think i don't know how to say it politely. Exactly what he's talking about her mother and i was. I been working since. I was twelve years old and I always had a job. And i got myself to school. I got myself dress. Made my own lunch And i was lucky to have a roof over my head. So i look at it. I would never have changed anything in my past. I would got me worry am today to made me a very strong and very independent woman. So i'm extremely grateful for that s and it's also blessed me with a wonderful husband and three beautiful sons and i've created my own life in my own family for myself and i think when you're young. It's really difficult to to try to figure out how you do that. And sometimes you have a path where you think your life is going to go one way and then your life goes a totally different direction. And that's happened to me many many times. I've now don't make plans for anything. I just leave it up to university to make sure i'm on the right track that it goes the right way and and I use my gut instinct for a lot of decisions that i make And my intuition it's gotten me here and it's pretty wonderful and i'm extremely happy. I'm very blessed grateful. Person let me ask you was says i say let me ask you this too much or another thing i say is i'm gonna be real honest with you and she says so you've been lying to i say please do so if you were gonna say what part of the country you're from or what region influenced you. You know the most not just from food perspective but from thinking perspective. Where would that be. Well i would start with the food perspective. Because i was born in new orleans louisiana And so i have a lot of french in my soul. And i think that that has a lot to do with the things that i like and i and i when you look at the store and it doesn't really make any sense if you look on the outside. It looks like a house. On the outside. I have new orleans fixtures that were made in.

Explainer 158: Ukraines presidential elections: out with the old in with the new?

"In two thousand fourteen in a fragile done. Ukraine Petrie Persian came to power in a landslide victory is not only of the president. Future. Monday chief opinion, not forces tried to do my best to defend Ukraine and people to bring security and to bring this five alita once tipped as a pro e u reformist came in. He would end the conflict in east, Ukraine. A matter of weeks is interrupted sizable spot of bother in the first round of the presidential elections. This Sunday Porsche isn't even guaranteed a place in the final run-off for the first time in Ukraine's history. The top two candidates are not clear cut to head of time poll. So far have been volatile results have consistently shown that house of more than thirty candidates? It is neither portion ker know, the fiber and former PM Hewlett Michenko who is stealing the top spot in that place polling with around twenty percent of the votes is actor and comedian Alinsky. Linski zero political experience and know organized party behind him. In fact, the closest come to preparation for the job is playing the role of fictitious president of the people in a popular Ukrainian sitcom yet despite this Porsche anchor and Timoshenko still trail significantly behind. So what's gone wrong? Why has the tide turned against Persian koso- further? And is there any chance it will be reversed in time? After the Ukrainian revolution of two thousand fourteen politically economically and socially, the people showed. It was time for Ukraine to be on par with the rest of Europe. And the hope was pinned on partial. While partial has an outright failed Gwendolyn, SaaS director of the center for east European and international studies in Berlin explains. The trouble of not living up to great expectations. The incumbent Puerto Shangqiu is really tied to the hopes that were societas with the euro my Donald two thousand thirteen and fourteen and he did initiate an important reform process. And also a pro western coasts for the whole of Ukraine, but he also symbolizes all the disappointments. So they hopes were extremely high and the reform process is extremely complex and slow. It has to be slow to certain extent and the electorate now associates also the failures or the slowness of this reform process with him. Aside from sluggish reforms another important sticking point is the ongoing water Ukraine's, east grunted, Putin's idea of Nevada and new pro Russian region in the east and south Ukraine hasn't materialized, but the have been some thirteen thousand deaths since the conflict began and the ceasefire remains fragile further. Still the wall has also fan the flames of militant Ukrainian nationalism formed as a breakaway from volunteer. Military group started in the early days of the war the far right national call have wreaked havoc on partially because recent campaign trail violently protesting presidential rallies with corruption. Acusations this added to the poor living conditions across the country. Makes it clear why Porsche is on shaky ground in Bateson. The freelance journalist in Kiev tells us more about the burdens portion Bess in Ukraine, it's especially difficult not only because the country with active finding a war going on. But also because it's twenty eight year history. They've only reelected and then come to the president once life is very hard for the average Ukrainian salaries are quite low the average monthly wages less than three hundred dollars a month utilities have been going up. So there's a lot of frustration in the country. And of course, gets directed at the president because there's still a belief that the president defines the entire system and that the right person could change that one of partial key reforms which brought him to pal in two thousand fourteen was his commitment to ending the corruption that had plagued the country ever since it became independent from Russia almost thirty years ago, though, he's made substantial anti corruption reforms in important sectors such as gas tax and banking a recent scandal within the defense ministry has tainted his presidency and only reinforced his image as a politician committed to enriching his pals. But it's partially co all that bad his not the only candor under five claims of this ilk, Timoshenko one-stop, the gas Princess has been in and out of water fillings to shady oligarchs politicians for years, and there are even suspicion surrounding newcomers landscape, the TV channel which runs his show is owned by a controversial billionaire and few believed that it's a business connection of no political significance. Gwendolyn SaaS believes the other patches of grass aren't necessarily greener. But if portion could get sin will Ukraine be better off, it is very hard to say one knows what one gets so it will be a continued slow reform process. Whereas with the other two candidates one we really don't know what policies they would focus on one end. Ski has absolutely no an actual program to speak off. So we would see something new with him. That's what he's running on on. Julia Timoshenko claims she roping something new that is highly doubtful. She is not a new petition on the Ukrainian context. So in the west many seaport o'shane cluelessly the easy option to prepare for. But it will also not mean a quick reform process in Ukraine and inexperienced leader like Solent scheme could make Ukraine susceptible to foreign influence, notably that of the Russians who to his credit portion has largely kept it Bain. While Timoshenko's presidential hopes failed to spell out, even one succinct agenda and of time gone by Porsche is not popular. But Ukraine must decide if the unknown will really be any better.
