Janna Cawrse Esarey
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Only connect.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Passion. Introspection. Willingness to connect.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "I love you." But I like it that way.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Hurting other people's feelings. I know that sounds weird, but there are a few (OK, maybe several) things I've done or said in my life that were just plain mean. Those memories pain me more than any other regrets I can think of.

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

A. No matter how much life may stink at times, I can't imagine wanting to be anyone else. Then I'd have to deal with their problems. I mean, everyone has problems. I, at least, know and own mine. (Plus, as my mother-in-law once said in between radiation treatments for breast cancer: Life is fun!)
