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. What do you regret most?
A. I spent too much time asking permission to have the life I wanted and thinking I had to please everyone else. I'm so happy I grew out of it.
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.
