16. What is your favourite book/movie/song?
Do you know it is very difficult to choose just one favourite for these three things? I really tried, but I think I need to give you top three and even that is difficult
Book - The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver (and I'm reading it again right now!), All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews, A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman
Movie - The Social Network, A League of Their Own, About Time
Song - Mr. Jones by Counting Crows, Glycerine by Bush, Love It or Hate It by The Game
17. If you could make one change in the world, what would it be?
I would want everyone to have enough to eat. There is so much food in this world and we move it all around the globe too much. As much as I love having all kinds of produce at my disposal (often fresh but certainly frozen), I think we would benefit by sticking with seasonal fruits and vegetables and leaving produce in the location where it is grown for those people to eat. I haven't thought too deeply about this to really crystallize my solution for world hunger, but even in our own city, hunger is a problem that we should be doing more about.
18. What do you love to do for or give to others?
I love to prepare food for others. Food is good for celebrations, it's something to do in times of crisis (when you feel helpless), and everyone needs to eat! I also like gifting food related things to people because it's consumable and doesn't lead to a clutter of things people don't need.
19. What excites you?
Seeing beauty in the world. I love seeing pretty trees, flowers, skies, bodies of water, etc. I really do appreciate when I see that natural beauty, I hope my children will remember me as someone who is always calling out "look at that tree, it's so pretty!".
20. What do you wish you did more of?
This is a hard question because I usually think of it as what I should be doing less - less phone time, less alcohol, less yelling at my kids, etc. I think I do enough of many of the good things, and even the things I indulge in are worth it to me. Do you know what I mean?
