What is your idea of perfect happiness? Knowing, each moment, that I have such freedom, that I have love around me, that there is so much still to explore.
If you could come back as a dog or a cat, which one would it be & why? I would say a cat. I'm independent, though I can be demanding at times - those are rather cat-like traits, no? And I'd love to be able to move like a cat. I love the way they move.
What is your pet's most treasured possession? Well, for the bovine set, it would definitely be the red-handled horse brush. Daisy (cow), Frisco (steer), and Sir Baby (bull) all love to be brushed. They'll even fight over who's turn it is. Charlie's favorite toy is the stuffed animal du jour.
Your proudest achievement so far? I suppose I'm most proud of the fact that I have trusted myself enough to take risks with my life and lifestyle, to work hard to make those risks into successes, and to not crumble under the criticism or "shoulds" of others. There have been a lot of people who told me my dreams couldn't and wouldn't work, but they were wrong, and I've created this life that I love.
Who are your heroes in real life? Those who plant seeds - both in the dirt and in the mind.
