I Miss This

This is how I lived during the taping of Project Runway. Everywhere I went and every thing I did was captured. Upon returning to LA it was almost strange to walk around without cameras in my face, you kind-of get used to it after a while. I think I went through withdrawals.

Much Love SANTINO.

i would think it would bother you or something cuz i know i would get bothered.

I feel confident that if you just keep doing your thing you'll soon have plenty of cameras in your face again.

Has anyone recognized you "on the street" yet?

Santino you are my glad to learn you are not straight!

You are a star. You are an artist. You just blow me away. If you don't win, it won't matter. You're going to be huge. Good luck though!

BIG dreams, BIG heart, Passionate! Three words that came to mind...and big hands ;) I never watched the show, but listened to my favorite male friends rave on about Santino. Until it was mentioned where you "grew up" (although the most important stages of your "growth" as a person weren't obviously unfolding in St. Chuck - or maybe)it didn't click. I can remember very vividly standing next to you at Friday night games, listening to you tell me..."I am going to design for GUESS." *grins* As easy as it may seem to say it now...I believed it just might happen, and wondered for awhile where "Sonny" had gone & become. Last night I got out old photos, and the smile still carries with me today! You were one of a kind, and confidence surrounded you, even then! What respect you deserve...and even a thank you for being someone that even today...after...12 years or so...has made me smile & laugh at just a memory. I just wanted in some way to let you know, I couldn't wish anything but the absolute best to you & yours. And leave you with some of my favorite words that keep me in check.
From a friend,
People are not disturbed by the things they see, but the view they take of them....and what you see depends mainly on what you look for. If you spend most your life pretending not to be the person that you are... but who you choose to be, then you'll learn to survive in your own fictitious world. If you compare yourself with others, you will become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. As far as possible, and without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak the truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant, they too have their story. Disappointing others to be true to yourself, seeing beauty even when its not pretty everyday, and empty moments are familiar to us all. Learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul and love doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't mean security. And it is never too late to give up your prejudices. xo~K
