I’ve always been fascinated by those who make their own way. Who make up their story as they go along. With or without support, defying conventions, following their passion, acknowledging their purpose. It shows on their faces. Wonderful faces.

  1. What’s your favorite word?
    For years, it has been discombobulated because of the state I often found myself in, and I love the way it rolls off the tongue. But these days, the word I love to hear most is inspired.
  1. What’s your least favorite word?
    End. Most of my associations with the word are negative: “At wits’ end”, “Dead end”, “End of the Road”, “The End”. I have a hard time with things being over and would much rather think about the beginning of a new day than the end of a bad one.
  1. What’s your favorite book?
    The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo. It came to me at a pinnacle time in my life, and it is one of the few books that I have read more than once.
  1. What’s your favorite movie?
    My daughter’s name, Mia, comes from one of my favorite movies, Pulp Fiction. I also probably have every line in It’s a Wonderful Life memorized.
  1. What’s your favorite piece of music?
    I like songs that break my heart a little bit each time I listen to them, so Sweet Euphoria by Chris Cornell and Jeff Buckley’s version of Hallelujah.
  1. What’s your favorite beverage?
    I was recently introduced to a Viennese way to drink espresso…mit Schlag, which means with whipped cream. It is the only way I start my day!
  1. What five people throughout history would you like to have dinner with?
    Jesus, John Lennon, Frida Kahlo, my maternal grandmother who died when I was one, and my favorite ice breaker, Bill Sloan!
  1. What is the one place in the world that you would like to see (again or for the first time?)
    Heaven. I would love for it to be my last stop.
  1. What motivates you?
    The inspiration felt when creating something that feels like God breathed it into me.
  1. What is your mantra?
    Thy will, not mine, be done.

Kenoka

Some people have a way about them. A clarity. An openness. Kenoka is an artist, a re-inventor, a student, an old soul with a childlike innocence. He’s also silly and winning and up for anything. Kenoka is a gift. Click on the link to find out more about Kenoka and his art.

  1. What’s your favorite word?
    Compassion.
  1. What’s your least favorite word?
    I can’t. It’s considered a curse word in our family.

    Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu.
  1. What’s your favorite movie?
    Harold and Maude directed by Hal Ashby.

    My Mom, My Nana, My Grandfather, Lau Tzu and Danny Elfman.
  1. What is the one place in the world that you would like to see (again or for the first time?)
    Japan. Again. But I really don’t like traveling. It’s not about the place.
  1. What motivates you?
    If I’m not learning something and it’s not creatively challenging, I’m not living. Curiosity…maybe it’s that. Everything motivates me.
  1. What is your mantra?
    Just be.
