Judy. Early or mid 90′s at the NAFAA Fat Feminist Conference ( i think)…
she is reading, i am mesmerized (having known of her writing and her
activism since the early 80′s)…she is reading about jews and food…and
mentions her love for a taste in the past…bananas and sour cream.

The next day, I go into the hotel’s industrial sized kitchen…and i beg….
and they give it to me. I slice the bananas into a beautiful bowl of sour cream….
and go over to her table…felt too shy to say much or to hang out longer than the seconds it took to give it to her.
But what a sparkle of joy i remember in those eyes. She laughed and laughed and thanked me profusely…

and that’s my own personal favorite Judy story.

May you be in some heavenly realm Judy, in peace, in ease…
