Pam Lewis
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Breathe deeply

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. One-upsmanship. The trouble is that I'm usually unaware when it's started, so at first I think I need to reach for a one-up of my own. I never have one ready and luckily I can then see how ridiculous the whole thing is.

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’s your greatest flaw?

A. I play way too much online Scrabble.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I'd like to be fluent in more languages.
