Me: Q: What is your favorite time of day?
OS: A: I love the early morning hours! The light is soft. The energy is low. Everything is quieter than later in the day.
Q: Do you have any regrets?
A: Very few. I regret being an adult, sometimes. I regret that I didn't jump in more puddles or dance in the rain. I regret not jumping out of planes, well, not really on that one.
Q: What are your favorite foods?
A: Prime rib, T-bone steak, and enchiladas.
Q: Are there any foods you don't like?
A: Yes: beets and liver. I think beets and liver were a mistake.
Q: What is your favorite artistic medium?
A: I'll always love glass, but I can't get downstairs to make glass beads often anymore. Right now, I'm working with polymer clay. I have come to love that medium.
Q: What is your biggest challenge with polymer clay?
A: Making round hollow beads. Those are rough.
Q: Tell me your deepest, darkest secret.
A: If I told you, then it wouldn't be a secret anymore, would it?
Q: Why did you dye your hair pink?
A: It was a very cold, snowy March day in Lent, and I was bored.
Q: If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be and why?
A: There are a lot of things I'd like to change, but if I did, something else would change, including who I am. The things that have happened, and most have been our of my control, have made me into the person I am today. I wouldn't want to change who I am for anything or anyonel.
Q: Last question: Silence. What attracts you to silence?
A: The silence itself brings peace.
Q: More later?
A: Not today, but in a while, maybe.
