I met Joy at a street fair in Lincoln Center dressed in the most wonderful colors. We stopped to talk for a moment about style and its affect on the people around us. Joy shared with me the following words:
My late husband grew to get my style although did ask why he never saw
anyone else who dressed like me. I told him it was because I was so
unique. Being a widow now for more years than seems possible, I have
wondered if my manner of dress puts a lot of people off. I might like to
meet someone, but will not change anything about myself to make it
happen. It's like breathing, in my world. I couldn't live without it.
