If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Wow. That’s hard. Definitely somewhere in the mountains but I haven’t been to enough mountainy places around the world. I'm going to say Switzerland, British Columbia, or Sandpoint Idaho.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Which language do you want to learn?
What's your favorite quote (for now)?
It’s from Gandhi and I’ll paraphrase:
“You can tell the greatness of a nation by the way it treats it’s animals”
What is your favorite colour?
Color is my bliss and I love all things colorful. But my big favorites are yellow, red and turquoise. I have another favorite, which is pink, but it’s like my sacred favorite or something - I rarely use it or decorate with it. Perhaps it’s because I lead a life surrounded by boys that I keep pink seperate, all to myself. Wow, that was a long answer.

I think my tie dye t-shirts are half my identity and half my security blanket

a writer, photographer, artist, and singer all mixed together

for years it was Country Home, which just folded :( But I do love Guideposts - it restores my faith
If you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?

c) arts & crafts supplies or gardening supplies
d) fun stuff for my dogs
e) eBay or Etsy

Describe your personal style?
casual to a fault, super colorful, earring-conscious, perhaps a little too groovy
What are you going to do after this?
visit some blogs and then take a nap
What are your favourite movies?
I have lots of favorites. After years of all types of movies though, I pretty much stick with light-hearted ones now. The state of the world sucks my emotional sanity out of me - I enjoy movies that restore it. "Chocolat" is an example.
What's your favourite fruit?
bananas and strawberries - almost all berries actually. oooh - and seedless watermelon
