A doll that the king of Afghanistan gave me 31 years ago when I was a girl. When I had to flee the country, my uncle told me he’d save it for me. He buried it in a shoebox in his basement to hide it from the Taliban, which had banned dolls. It survived two wars, the Soviet and the Taliban, and when he returned it to me, it looked brand-new, just as it had when I was a girl. Where do you feel most inspired? When I’m traveling on an inner journey in the midst of creating. 4 What is your idea of perfect happiness? To love and be loved. In your next life, who or what would you most like to be?

She carried herself with such grace and was dressed in a traditional gown, dripping with colors: emerald greens, ruby reds. Who are your heroes? Margaret Thatcher and Eva Perón. What is the greatest advice you’ve ever received? “What people do and say is a reflection of themselves and has nothing to do with you.” L In what historical period would you most like to have lived? The 1600s. Women were powerful, in an elegant and feminine way. If your life had a theme song, what would it be? Freedom is not free. And never, ever, ever give up. 5 26 Lonny MARCH • APRIL 2012 2012 MARCH • APRIL Lonny 27
