A. Wonton noodle soup for breakfast...a school visit with enthusiastic, prepared kids...no traffic on the way back home...a sushi dinner with my husband and son...emails from friends...finding a new poem...falling asleep with the fragrance of gardenias blowing through the window screens. Yes, that would be Perfect Happiness!
A. "I'll do it tomorrow": I am a terrible procrastinator.
A. I would like to be able to swim like a fish (or dolphin). I often dream about that, and wrote a poem about it in NIGHT GARDEN: Poems from the World of Dreams.
