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

A. Only connect.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Um. I'm intense. That's both good and bad.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. My mom. I'm not sure if she counts, but I think it's funny how it's only famous people we learn about "in history." What about all the real people? I've learned the most about the world and myself from my mom.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness? Heck, I'll just take regular old happiness, thanks. Singing loud and off-key on a roadtrip. Sun-warmed raspberries off the bush. The way a hug sometimes nestles me into my daughter so her neck and mine are the same. So many things. But, all in all, it's round and warm and orange-ish red and full and faintly sweet. It's the way I feel talking with my husband or my girlfriends or my mom when they really really GET me.

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

A. Playing the guitar. I tried to learn while on our voyage, but I was dismal.
