Okay, folks, now for the real reason I am sticking around Las Vegas! About three weeks after my dad died, I met this clown…. literally. My new boyfriend Jim is a clown for the water / air circus spectacle “Le Reve” at the Wynn casino. After dating about three months while I was still traveling, he asked me to stay with him in Sin City and I said yes! I will use Vegas as a home base from now on, and continue the dress project through arts residencies I will travel to in various states every few months or so. With my father’s deep love of all things circus, I think he is smiling down on this amazing new love in my life.
