My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Love well. Serve well. Share well.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Ironically, considering the answer to question five, I love, love, love Vancouver, and wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. Alfred Nobel.
When that guy was trying to invent dynamite, his factory blew up, his brother died, his dad had a stroke, the city of Stockholm kicked him out, ships blew up, the San Francisco docks exploded, and yet he kept going. Dynamite was used to blow up thousands more people. And then Alfred got old and -- possibly in a crisis of conscience -- established the Nobel prizes.
I'd just like to take him by the ears and say, "what the h-e-double-hockey-sticks were you thinking? And what kind of person are you, anyway?"
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. People-watching. Is that an occupation?
