In the 1920’s, Catherine Robbins, Hilda Kurth, and Kathleen Norris, also known as the Three Musketeers, were the first women to hike the Long Trail, which runs for 272 miles through the length of Vermont and is the oldest long-distance trail in the United States.
After seeing her performance piece at the Serpentine Gallery in London, Maria Abramovic is my current muse.
