Still Moving: a memoir (Paperback)
her internationally acclaimed art gallery after thirty-three years, she found herself navigating a sea of bewilderment.
Risk-taking had long been the tour de force of her life. But had she failed, or had she succeeded?
Change always comes at a price.
Through delicious and dark, scintillating and salacious true
tales of planned and accidental intersections with the exotic
and quixotic, Durham pits her real self against her ideal self in
a lifelong journey as serpentine as the Mobius strip her father
made for her more than seven decades ago.
On stage and off, Durham creates and is created by story. Raven spirit tattoos on
both shoulders, wanderlust in her eyes, she danced in ceremony with tribal Kachin
women, chanted "Free Gaza" from aboard the seized Audacity of Hope ship, was cured
by a Voodoo priest in a Haitian cemetery, slogged through the tempestuous lands'
end at Tierra del Fuego, and breathlessly summitted Kilimanjaro. Everywhere this
around-the-world traveler wandered, she chased the ghosts of her own ignorance
and arrogance, culled clarity from confusion, and dug herself out from the crushing
numbness of defeat.
Durham unabashedly pulls back the curtain on loves lost and found and on a life
lived richly and openly amid fair fields and foreign wars, in places sacred and profane.
Her incurable optimism gives inspiration and voice to the struggles of women worldwide, empowers those of us who feel derailed by a world out of control, and frees us to open the door to love.
