“How do you encapsulate Dolly in words? An earth goddess, a gentle, compassionate, fierce as all fucking hell warrior momma who exudes sensuality and spirit in every interaction? How do you wrap your arms around a cyclone of change, with a center that is pure heart stillness? I imagine taking someone's hand to introduce them to Dolly, pulling them along, breathlessly saying, "See that bone-deep gorgeous woman? The one with a smile that moves waves in the ocean like the moon. That hunter and holder of dreams, the soul healer who can see you before you even know yourself? The woman with a laugh that Angels could not replicate. Yeah, that one. She is my harbor. She is my home. You should go say hi."
