I met Abbey Leroux on June 1st 1981. At the time she became, and as history now shows, my first and only sister. Frankly, I could not have picked a better partner in this life for myself had I been given all the resources necessary for the choosing. Abbey is one of the most incredible people I've ever met. Her legend is mythic amongst my friends and I. Her struggles, her triumphs, and the outrageous beauty of her lifestyle have been spun into parables used to guide others in following their bliss, and to show what kind of life is possible if you stop being an asshole and approach it with a sense of joy and adventure. In this portrait, I think one gets a pretty hefty dose of what makes her incomparable.
