Steven Forrest


Where are you the happiest?

Hiking in the desert. Best part of it is the silence because I am such a word guy. It's a great balance for my life. 

What is your most vivid memory?

I used to sail a lot. A mast crashed down two feet from where I was sitting. Two feet closer and I would have been dead. 

What would you change about yourself?

I would be a fifth house Sun so I didn't work all the time and I had a personal life. 

Who is your hero?

I have several. First, Tristan Jones who sailed solo around the world and wrote so eloquently about it. Turns out half of it was lies but he taught me how to write. Also Ram Dass (spiritual teacher) who was such a beacon for many who left the western academic world. 

What superhero power would you choose?

To fly. So I could just soar above the world like a hawk.
