"I would be an eagle, to fly on the level of the heavens, and to experience freedom, peace of mind and freedom...an eagle that soars above all the worries and illusions of the worries here on earth. No war, no worries, just peace."
If told you had to, would you base jump or skydive, why?
"Could I do both?
I would love to do either, not much really scares me too much...except spiders!"

"Gosh...Martha Stewart or Ellen Degeneres! Martha Stewart is a DIY Empire, and very savy...so I would meet her with a million questions! Ellen makes me laugh, she exudes such a wonderful light, and her comedy is witty, smart, and clean! There isn't an episode that goes by that I don't laugh and dance, she is what the world really needs more of. Positive energy, love, and laughter! :)"
