If your five year old self woke up in your current body, what would happen, what would you say?

“What is this?!? My feet are HUGE. My hair’s all weird and gray. Why am I fat. But I’ve got dogs? And a cat?? COOL BEANS. Let’s get some ice cream for breakfast.”

What is a relationship deal breaker for you?  Whether you are talking about a romantic one, a friendship or a related to sort of relationship?

I have a few – Manipulative or abusive behavior. Deception. Cigarette smoking. Deadbeat dad/husband/human. Cruelty toward any living being.

Is there something out there, a thought, an idea, a current event, or a fear that you find deeply unsettling?

I’m profoundly disturbed by the way certain people in our country treat others as less than. They get pretty riled up at the suggestion that they’re racist, so let’s boil it down to this. If you’re outraged that two girls kissed during a televised parade but can explain away the sight of women and children refugees fleeing border patrol tear gas then you are part of the problem.

If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

Been caught up at the wrong protest (or the right one, depending on your point of view). Or toppling a confederate monument. Probably one of those.

What were you grateful for this week? Something that brought some joy into your world?

Fur babies, good friends, moscato, and Bee’s unfailing sense of humor. Bless.
