What was the best book or series that you've ever read or watched? The Good Place altered how I examine and face the world. The Office, particularly the cold open for the episode called "Product Recall" is why my husband and I connected initially.
What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation? Taylor Swift's re-record strategy and reasoning, and a literary-themed deep dive into her song All Too Well (Ten Minute Version) (Taylor's Version) - yes, that's the title of the song, and yes, there are reasons.
Who inspires you to be better? My son Sam. He brings home preschool lessons like “take deep breaths when you’re upset” and “if you need a minute to calm down, meditate”. Few things will stop you in your tracks like a good life lesson from the preschooler. (He owns his advice – during hockey, he chose to handle big feelings by meditating on the ice as his hockey teammates practiced around him.)
What was one of the most interesting/best concerts you’ve been to? I’ve been lucky to go to amazing shows. In no order of importance: Paul McCartney in Sioux Falls, Guster at Red Rocks (x2), Guster with the Omaha Symphony Orchestra (I admit – this one wins), Taylor Swift at the Brown County Fair before she was a big deal (and several more times when she was a big deal), Tom Petty, Billy Joel, Elton John, Keith Urban, Ed Sheeran.
If you were given one thousand acres of land that you didn’t need to pay taxes on but couldn’t sell, what would you do with it? There’s a bookstore in Connecticut called Book Barn. It’s a meandering path of sheds and small barns and little structures filled with books organized by genre. I would love to build a business like that here. I’d also host a writing retreat AirBNB, though it would be a struggle to not claim it as my own.
