'Please, Open this Book!' by Adam Lehrhaupt
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Create as much as possible, love deeply, and enjoy every moment.
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. At some point, someone figured out that sun would come up every day, even without all the dancing and singing. It would have to be that guy.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?
A. This one is tough. I really like the tragic ones. Frankenstein's monster, Darth Vader or even Capt. Ahab (The whale is the hero of that one, right?)
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. On a cool sunny day, I sit in the shade of a tree at the edge of a beach. A light breeze blows across, and ruffles the pages of my book. I can hear my kids playing in the sand to my side. My wife dozes contentedly on our blanket. Birds chirp quietly in the distance. Moisture glistens as it runs down the side of my cold beverage. Yeah, that about sums it up.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Battle mage.
