My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. I never have just one favorite of anything so it's a tie between Auntie Mame, Anne Shirley and Moll Flanders.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
Perfection (to me) means the end of growth or evolution -- what is perfect is done, complete -- and so it's never been something I've consciously reached for. I love experiencing a thousand constantly shifting shades of happiness.
Close to perfect happiness though, would be spring, with rich sunshine, fresh breezes and life blooming all around me. Spring is exciting, another chance to stretch and reach and begin anew. All things seem possible in spring. It makes me positively giddy.
