EXCLUSIVE: Poet Theresa Stern Takes Classicalite's Proust Questionnaire

EXCLUSIVE: Poet Theresa Stern Takes Classicalite's Mini-Proust Questionnaire >>

"Finally I was born, the first poet not removed from human life by even the slightest trace of a personality. The sensation of being read by one of my poems has now completely supplanted the banal nostalgia produced in the reader by the best poetry created before me." -- Theresa Stern

EXCLUSIVE: Shakina Nayfack Takes Classicalite's Proust Questionnaire

EXCLUSIVE: Transgender Theater Star SHAKINA Takes Our Proust Q&A >>

The word shakina--lowercase--is a distinctly Hebraic one. Specifically, it refers to the feminine presence of the divine spirit. Washed in the blood of Jimmy Carter's Southern Baptist on my mother's side, myself, I'm wont to call it the most important side of Elohim (as per that old Gnostic notion of Christ as both man and woman). Too bad, though, the name Transgendered Jesus is already taken. Because those are probably the best two words to describe one SHAKINA Nayfack--definitely uppercase.
