More than just big hair!
This is brilliant!
I subscribed to Sara’s Substack shortly after you and I met, and have not regretted it at all! She truly is one of a kind in humor and how she views the world via her writings.
Like the true writing artist you are, you’ve described who she is beautifully. Well done, sweet friend!💞
Terrific celebration of her work and humanity. Your words are thoughtful and match the beauty of her own.
Looking good ❤️
Thank you for introducing me to Sara! I had no idea the delightfulness I was missing out on!
I was not familiar with Sara and her Substack before, but she's too good not to subscribe. Thanks for introducing her to new readers like myself ❤️
This is so unbelievably kind. What a gift. I am a huge dork and a vaguely organized mess of characteristics that are sometimes gorgeous and sometimes shitty and sometimes meh. Thank you for this. I will strive to be as kind and loving as you!
OK OK, is this you, Benincasa?? : )
"One cannot fully comprehend Sara's awesomeness without acknowledging her unparalleled capacity for empathy."
Wow. This makes my heart sing. I have been a huge Sara B. fan for almost a decade now. She is fearless, absolutely brilliant and hilarious as well. She is one of the people I miss most back on the sadly-devolved Twitter (it was so seamless and easy to have such a wide group there and not scattered to the winds and to easily curate and distribute things all over).
Two standouts from that time:
a.) The Fall 2016 classic about the Awesome "Dad" qualities of Tim Kaine. So on point and also definitely filled a big gaping hole in my cynical, rotted-walnut-kernel heart. Ahhhh for Tim Kaine comforting you with hot chocolate after a rough day of geometry!
b. An incredible series (sadly vaporized now) of various personifications of the Divine Sara photoshopped into the horrible "Golden Young God" Trump Tennis Sweater portrait at Mar a Lago. Uber-Kitsch. I think I remember one in the series where she appeared with multiple arms, like a mad Italian-American Goddess Kali. Never have I regretted not screenshotting more.
Recently, she created a delirious homage to Chicago I forwarded to several locals thre I know.
Cheers and clearly you have GREAT TASTE!!!! : )

You know how to capture the true and pure essence of any human!
One day I hope someone describes my words as “linguistic wizardry.” Happy birthday, Sara! LRT, this was beautiful.
