    There's no single artist who inspires or moves me more than others, but one piece of art that always catches my eye is Klimt's The Kiss.

    What's your favorite New Year's Eve memory?

    Realizing in Maui that the man I was with for New Year's was NOT the man I was going to choose to spend the rest of my life with- it was a moment of clarity and relief. Am I sounding like an oddball yet?

    Took that goofball back after New Years. I fixed that error later.

    I love my perspective, but I dislike how it forces me to keep a boundary wall between me and so many other people. Talk about a compartmentalized life!

    You've asked great questions- so refreshing!

    Sounds corny but God has the most impact on me. I never tire of His creation and, in turn, His creativity inspires me to do more and do better.

    What's the best - and most challenging thing you ever did?

    Went to Russia in 2004 to teach and because of that trip, I started traveling around the world.

    Usually, I don't listen to music.

I'm blessed to live in a rural area and there's no need of man made music when the Universe is singing to my heart.

    Perhaps that my prickliness hides a soft heart. A prickly heart is my defense against the world.

    As soon as I wake up and, for the most part, stay that way the rest of the day.
