My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Open eyes. Open hands. Open heart. Open mind.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Could I be a great painter (who doesn't have to worry too much about surviving financially) living in an exotic location surrounded by friends and family? I’ll be her.
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. See #5 and #10.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
Jesus, and I would say hello, and then see what happens, listening and watching and using every other sense available to me as the moments passed.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. People have historically commented on my hair, but as I age, I think it’s not so much noticed. Which is fine by me. People also say I carry a kind of sadness, which inevitably makes me sad, whether I am or not. Maybe my attitude of listening? I’ve been told that, too. I’ll take that.
