"I used to think I was nothing like my mom. She sipped tea and liked flowers. She spent hours in silence, sculpting abstract 'botanical improvisations' out of clay and carving the likeness of an orchid into her pottery. I liked Mortal Kombat and wanted to be a secret agent or a vampire slayer. Her life always seemed so ... quiet to me.

"Usually I catch myself acting like my mom when I'm problem solving. My mom's always been an expert at navigating tricky situations; she's hands-on and doesn't mind getting a little bit dirty. I've completely inherited her habit of showing up early to parties and helping the host optimize their space for ultimate functionality and flow. It's usually around the time that I've moved someone's bar across the room or rearranged their buffet that I'm like, 'Woah. You completely can't even help yourself right now. You've turned into Seana.'"

"So I’m the wine lady. I make sure my friends have full glasses of heart-healthy red—or white, or sparkling, or fancy seltzer—because I love them, and that’s how my mama taught me to show it. Hey, at least it's not soda—the sugary stuff my mom was pushing will kill you."
Tracy Clark-Flory, Salon:
"My mom is hopelessly superstitious, to the point where she sometimes believes more in superstitions than she does science or common sense. She told me the scariest ghost stories as a child—and then insisted they were true. She consults with a psychic regularly—mainly about when I'll get married.
