Who was your best friend in elementary school?
We’ll call her Kiwi. We met in the second grade. I moved so much as a child, she was one of my few constants. We go long periods of time without contact, but we did get together for dinner a few months ago. We always tell one another we’re “exactly the same” which is impossible and also, true.
What things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?
Listen to me, make me laugh.
If you could make a 15 second speech to the entire world, what would you say?
If I could say all that I need to say in 15 seconds, I wouldn’t be a writer.
Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?
Neither. I do both well enough, can I choose to be an amazing musician instead?
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week had me grasping at gratitude and trying to hold on to all the good stuff with both hands. The refuge that I take in my husband’s arms at night. Cool, rainy days. Turning the pages of a great book. Good music. Bunnies in the yard. The last of the tulips. Joy in the enthusiasm of my children and the accomplishments of my friends. Overcoming anxiety moment to moment.
I’m happy to say that this week looks remarkably blank on the calendar. With that comes a little prayer of Please Let It Be So and then in expectation of disaster, a bit of “It is Well with My Soul” — but only the first verse, cause you know, heathen pagan Unitarian.
