Q & A

Whose are you?

God’s. The world’s. Mine.

How do you choose which language to write in?

Passion. Purpose.

If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live the next half of your life?

Delete my Facebook account, get up at sunrise and watch every sunset, meet a stranger every day, do a cartwheel every day, too, dance in odd places, travel by foot with nothing but my passport and the clothes on my body, learn a new language as well as plant and animal names, never look at clocks or mirrors, handwrite everything and date everything, too, skinny dip and cut my hair, fall in love and make out in public, write a book. Or two.

Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?

Umm, no. Duuh. Those 10 years could be the time of my life. Probably will be, too.

Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?

All infants.

My grandfather on his deathbed.

My sisters who just get it. Every time.

When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?

Just now. 

In church, at Yoga, on the telephone, giving a speech, making out, walking up more than 16 steps, swimming, dancing.

Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

Yes I do. Especially when the door doesn’t close or open fast enough!!!

What are you most grateful for?

For my life with everything that it consists of.

The ability to love and believe.

What is your favorite sparetime activity? No lists allowed!


When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?

For the world – when it is too late. 

For me – when it is almost too late.

What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

One: Making choices based on deliberation, dialogue, and trust.

Two: Not regretting them.

Three: Learning from them. Saying and meaning that you would do it again, just a little differently.

Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

Religion gets in the way of Relationship.

If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

I have yet to fail loving unconditionally. 

What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

My hair. My guestbookentries.

If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

Fear of judgement. And of loneliness. Right?

What do you love? 

God. My blood and world family. All the strangers out there. Me.
