Happiness as Anarchy #247: Meeting Real People

I’m always curious to find out how real people are. Especially famous people. It’s hard to tell if they’re putting on a show or if the show is genuine. This question accompanied me on my drive to Melbourne this morning to meet Amanda Palmer at a workshop for artists. How would she be in real life? As real as she seems in her book (that I’ve read twice) or not?
There was not even a sniff of disappointment – she is a very grounded, strong, warm person – very real. I’m delighted to have spent a few hours in her company.
