I love thick novels and biographies
Getting lost in a good story.
Spending time in nature.
Deep conversations with good friends.
I love rock-climbing with my daughters,
Hiking and running and camping.
I love being forgiven
And being married to my best friend.
I love traveling and seeing new places.
People-watching in airports
And immigration queues
When I choose wisely.
I love being a multi-cultural family,
With its richness and history and complexity and fun.
I love finding out that I was wrong in judging
The person that I judged.
I love life and how love kills fear.
It is a strong weapon against death.
I love spending time with weirdos and misfits
And oddballs like me.
