My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Only connect.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Perfect happiness? Heck, I'll just take regular old happiness, thanks. Singing loud and off-key on a roadtrip. Sun-warmed raspberries off the bush. The way a hug sometimes nestles me into my daughter so her neck and mine are the same. So many things. But, all in all, it's round and warm and orange-ish red and full and faintly sweet. It's the way I feel talking with my husband or my girlfriends or my mom when they really really GET me.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Playing the guitar. I tried to learn while on our voyage, but I was dismal.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Right here. Right now. (I'm sure that's the Zen sort of thing everyone says, but it's truly what I strive for. Sometimes achieve.)
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Not having lived life to its fullest. (That, and my husband falling overboard while taking a leak.)
