Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Breathe deeply

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. My height. I'm five eleven, and it's funny because I never feel tall, but whenever I see photos of myself I think, wow, I'm tall. People must notice that about me.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Where I am.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Those elusive moment of utter contentment that surprise me at various times.  I might be out to dinner with good friends, look around and think this is happiness. Or with someone I love and have the same experience. Or outside in a wild place. In each case it's a recognition of that particular moment as happiness. It comes upon me; I don't seek it out.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. When my husband was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia, I realized that I would have to access my highest self to be able to care for him properly. And I did. Not that there weren't slips and frustrations, but I loved hving to reach alwasy for more patience, more understanding, more strength and more humor during those years.
