My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Here's what I put in my high school yearbook, and I do believe it's what I'd still put today: Walk slowly; all you can ever come to is yourself.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Perfect happiness would be that first and only small cup of coffee, made with my camping drip filter into a mug I bought in Mexico (and which probably contains lead, something I prefer not to think about), into which I add a dollop of heavy whipping cream, and sitting in the dark in front of my Christmas tree conjuring the faces of the people I most love in the world. Since that describes my early morning today, I guess I was perfectly happy around 4:30 a.m. today.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. Honeys, I'm stuck with being me, and I wouldn't change that.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Lying on the couch while my children bake me delicacies, clean the house, and write small songs of praise in my honor.
