On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep?
Cleanliness and no bugs. But we’ve stayed in some pretty horrible places. Memorably horrible and hopefully will never repeat those experiences.
Music or silence while working?
If I’m editing photos, I will listen to an audiobook or music, but if I’m writing, silence is best. Or at least quiet.
If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?
My Chinese porcelain (probably more than three pieces!), some of which is very old … as in thousands of years. And our bed. I LOVE our bed.
Our artwork — the paintings and photographs we have hanging on our walls — is worth more than money. My framed photos, Garry’s awards and photos, plus the paintings and photographs we have bought through the years cannot be replaced. Most are one-of-a-kind. These are what make our home ours.
What’s your least favorite mode of transportation?
Air by far. It’s not the planes, although they are bad. It’s airports that really kill me. Who designs them? They are the worst experience — horrible — for everyone. Is there anyone who loves airports? If so, why?
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
They finally fixed the well and we have water. And he came back and filled the huge hole with sand so we have something like a front walk again. Next week? A proper lid for the well, then we are finished with the crisis. Or so we fondly believe!
