A minute with Life & Style

A minute with MarySou Crafter


Where do you live?
I live in Voreios Polos, with my partner and our baby Snoopy

What did you have for breakfast?
Toast and a soy latte

Describe your perfect day
Roaming free, in nature with my tribe

Best book ever read? Why?
Happy Fat by Sofie Hagen, who is a stand-up comedian, a feminist and a fat activist and is one of the people I admire for her wit and fearless humour. If you are/were fat at some point in your life or if you wish to understand your fat family/friends better. Truly eye opening!

Best childhood memory?
Grandma Anthousa holding me in her arms and singing songs to me. A kind and wise soul who imparted many life lessons that I still carry with me.

What is always in your fridge?
Soy milk, seasonal fruit and veggies, fresh tofu

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
My music taste reflects my personality, which is mix and match really. So one moment I could be listening to local bands like Sandy Brour or Grendel Babies, and the next one to pop or folk music anything that speaks to me at that very moment.

What’s your spirit animal?
I have been told that I act like a cat, and I couldn’t agree more. I like to observe and approach people on my terms and I obviously love being adored and pampered. I also view them as survivors as they’re street wise and quite resilient.

What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my relationships, as they have taught me a lot over the years.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
Dancer in the Dark, directed by Lars Von Trier. Bjork stars in this film and I remember being shaken to my core by all the breath-taking. scenes and the soundtrack.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I would pick Louise L. Hay, who is an American motivational author and has been my go to feel good writer whenever I need guidance.

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
I would probably choose to travel at least 100 years back to a rainforest or a jungle, back when nature was still unspoiled by us.

What is your greatest fear?
My greatest fear is apathy, as solidarity with all people and nations seems like the only thing that could pull us out of this loop that we have fallen into (climate change, patriarchy, wars…)

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
Everything you need will come in due time. Just enjoy the moment and surrender yourself to this ocean of vast possibilities.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
I would never date a mean person! The thing I admire most in people is kindness.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
If the world was ending I would gather all my loved ones and have an endless party .
