A Young Wife
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Breathe deeply
Q. What do you regret most?
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I'd like to be fluent in more languages.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. An owl. I'd love to be a bird but with eyes in front, so that would have to be an owl. I already know how to make the calls, so I'd be ahead of the game if this ever came to pass.
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. This could sound a little pompous, but Edith Wharton. Not for her work (which I admire but do not identify with) but for her life, which was a huge inspiration to me.
