Janine di Giovanni
Red certainly is the family color. From my mother and my grandmother, I've learned a lot of little tricks - the significance of color and lipstick being one of them. I started skating when I was eight years old, and my mom did my makeup for me back then.

In skating over thin ice our safety is in our speed.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
