Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Why not?

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

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.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

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!
