What’s the last thing that made you smile?

Honestly, I just ran into my neighbor and we smiled. I smile a lot.

What is your most vivid memory?

The time I went to Newfoundland to see the largest meeting of whales in the world. I get terribly seasick so this other woman and I were vomiting as the boat went in circles. Just waiting and waiting to jump out of the boat. Finally, we dropped into the ocean and the whale was SOOOO big. It was like being next to a large grey bus. Not visually compelling but it was magic. And the very validation of how great it is to be alive.

What do you do to relax?

I don’t. It takes days of vacation to even come close.

What angers you most?

I get angry about so many things . . . where do I begin? Right now, hateful, fear-based reactions and values.

Ice cream or broccoli?

Ice cream. In all circumstances. Without question.
