THE LAKE HOUSE by Marci Nault
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Only in dreaming can we see how magnificent our lives are meant to be.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I'm an adult figure skater who will probably never achieve triples - I would love Michelle Kwan's talent.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. When people are oblivious to the people around them.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. I believe perfect happiness is when you're comfortable in your own skin. There are perfect moments that are deliriously delicious; sitting around a campfire; seeing a beautiful landscape; eating really incredible chocolate; laughing with friends; curling up reading a book to a child; dancing with no worries about what others think; kissing someone you love; and so many more. But true happiness is when you can be by yourself and simply be content wherever you are.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. My smile. I love life and tend to smile quite often even at strangers. Many times it opens up conversations and begins friendships.
