Dana Gynther
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Experience is one thing you can't get for nothing." Oscar Wilde (who else?)

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness is achieved by putting together the perfect combination of people, place, weather, activity... For example, being in New Orleans on a sunny spring day surrounded by family and friends listening to Dixieland music and eating shrimp po'boys. Or simply, not having to leave your house when it is torrentially raining and curling up with a good book and a cup of tea while your husband rubs your feet (hint hint!).
I try to throw perfect combinations together whenever possible.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Flexibility. And as boring as it may sound, self-discipline and practicality (both gifts from my father).

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. As a person or thing, just myself, though there are a number of animals that I would love to be for a day: hummingbird, whale, sloth, flying squirrel....

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Lifetime fear: tornadoes. Adult fear: losing my children.
