What do you most value in your life?

This breath. It is constant and yet always changing. Without it I am nothing.

What is your fondest memory?

Jumping hay bales on my grandparents farm. I found my first kitten there. I can still remember holding him, his belly was warm, soft, squishy. I was six.

What natural gift would you like most to possess?

I would love to fly. Flying is a natural as it gets!

When and where are you the happiest?

In the deep of nature. Where each step connects with the earth.

What is you favorite virtue?

Kindness, it truly does go a long way.
