My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Only connect.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Right here. Right now. (I'm sure that's the Zen sort of thing everyone says, but it's truly what I strive for. Sometimes achieve.)
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!)
Q. What’s your greatest fear?
A. Not having lived life to its fullest. (That, and my husband falling overboard while taking a leak.)
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Teaching sixth graders in New Orleans with Teach For America.
