looking low


LUCIA PASQUALE: By moonlight, or by sunlight?

SUSANNAH BETTS: by sunlight

LP: What are you currently reading?

SB: black holes & time warps, kip s. thorne

LP: If you could go on the adventure of a lifetime, where would you go?

SB: somewhere emotionally important to someone I was just starting to fall in love with, so we could discover what it would mean to us together. it’d either be lovely or a miserable failure. adventure for sure.

LP: In three to five words, describe what art means to you.

SB: an okay way of being
