Q & A

If you were granted one wish, what would you wish for?
I would wish for every person to be born with self confidence which would make for respectful and harmonious families and a more peaceful and happy world.
 
If you could visit any time, place, or person, when, where, or who would you visit?
I would have loved to be in the audience for the Buena Vista Social Club's performance at Carnegie Hall. Their music makes me love being alive.
 
Who's your favorite fictional character, and why?
The fox from The Little Prince for his wisdom and clarity.
 
What's the last totally selfless thing someone did for you--be it emotional, monetary, or just telling you that you had toilet paper stuck to your shoe...?
My husband holding down the fort at home with our two little ones as I spent a liberating week in my favorite city, New York, and on top of it being excited for me and not an ounce of jealousy.

What do you enjoy doing most with your free time?
Drawing, looking through magazines and books, crocheting, and making things with my hands. I am happiest when I am admiring, visualizing, or creating beautiful things.
