Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)? 

I was named after women on both sides of my family.

Music or silence while working?

Depends on my mood.  I almost always start with some sort of background noise, but if I have trouble focusing I cut everything off.  The exception is when I’m writing at the lake – I prefer silence there.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

1)  The quilt my mom made for me before I got married.  It’s sewed from patches of my clothes over the years and hangs on a quilt rack in our bedroom.  2)  My aqua journal.  I’m currently working on a project in longhand, and there’s no other record of it.  3)  My stones – a rose quartz and ones that read “strength,” “serenity,” and “blessings.”

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

Climb Mt. Everest, sky diving, become a butcher, give up deodorant, move somewhere without electricity or indoor plumbing, or own a motorcycle.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful for time with friends and a chance to sing on Sunday.

This week we have a pretty full calendar.  Bear’s got a lot going on at school, something almost every day, culminating in a Saturday schedule that runs from 7:30 in the morning to 9:30 at night.  Hopefully we’ll manage to sneak a dinner break in there.
