I love it that we can resurrect great threads like these and see the themes that are woven throughout our lives. Also, I love the anagrams! I'll have to figure out what mine is.

I have an anagram for you:  Ecce Rale (Latin for "behold, it is rare")

Or her cousin, CeCe Real!

Didn't she compete on RuPaul's Drag Race?

This inspired me to go back and read the clever and fairly short bio of RuPaul in the March 8 issue of The New Yorker. It's interesting that his husband Georges has a 60,000-acred ranch in Wyoming. I wonder if we could have our next rendezvous or BBQ there.

I didn't see anything about Cece Real or Ecce Rale there, but it does mention the Tennessee Williams play "Camino Real." That was the first performance RuPaul appeared in in drag, as a 15-year-old. The bio is by Ronan Farrow who seems entirely at home in RuPaul's world.
