1. What time of the day do you feel the most energetic and what do you usually do in those moments?
3am is my best time of the day. I feel more alive, awake, creative and productive. That’s when I tend to do most of my research and writing.
2. What’s the coolest thing about your life?
Right now, it’s the house I live in and the view I have from the windows and the deck.
But after living here for 20 years, I will be downsizing and moving into town. The house and the commute (15 miles each way) are both becoming too much of a chore for me to handle.
3. When are you most yourself?
When I’m at home. It’s the only time I feel I don’t have to try impress anyone. I know I shouldn’t have to do that anyway, but….
4. Would you rather be an ugly genius or a hot moron?
Anything as long as I’m not an ugly moron. There are too many of those as it is. And I don’t me ugly in terms of looks, but in attitude.
5. Would you abandon your phone, internet, family, and friends for three months for a prize of 1 million dollars?
No, it’s only money and there is a lot of truth to the old adage that money can’t buy happiness. What good would a million dollars be if you didn’t have family and friends. And my phone and internet connection is my link to the rest of the world.
Bonus: If you could wave a magic wand right now and have your life be perfect, what would that new life look like?
I had to think about this one for a while.
I think it would include… not having the car accident so I could still walk, run, and ice skate. And not losing any of my children and that all 8 of them would have survived. I always wanted a large family and I love the energy of children especially between the ages of 3 and 18. Out of 8 pregnancies, I was only able to give birth to two and now only have one child left. I lost my daughter when she was 16 and I’d give anything to have her still living and see what she would have done with her life.
