My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. I learned to dream through reading, learned to create dreams through writing, and learned to develop dreamers through teaching. I shall always be a dreamer. Come dream with me.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I let my kids watch too much television when they were little.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall. It’s the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events. Joy comes in sips, not gulps.
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Water. Deep water. I can't swim. Yet I love the beach. I like to LOOK at the water, not get in it!
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I'd love to dance with grace and style, to move as easily as I write.
