How many places have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.
I was born in Augusta, GA and lived between there and Worcester MA, Wareham MA and West Yarmouth MA. When I was seven we moved to West Yarmouth permanently. (A total of 9 residences that I know of)
When I was 17 I moved to Anderson IN to go to college (5 residences)
When I was 23 my husband and I moved to Dallas TX, and 5 years later moved back to Indiana with twins in tow (6 residences)
At 27, after my divorce I moved to Muncie then Beaver Dam Lake, 5 years later I returned to Anderson to finish my degree and later graduate school.
When I was 49-51 I lived in my minivan/camper. I lived in 44 states, countless cities, national parks and other protected/wilderness areas. In one day in March of 2010 I worked in 4 counties in 3 states and because it was winter “no camping” season I couldn’t find a campground so I stayed the weekend in yet another state.
When the journey ended I moved to Orlando Florida and soon got a job 3 hours away so I moved to Englewood, the day I moved my daughter called and said she was pregnant…3 months later I was back in Orlando and here I stay.
What type of music relaxes you the most?
It depends on my mood and why I need relaxed. Sometimes it’s Christian rock other times Battlestar Galactica (2004) soundtracks. It’s primarily instrumental with many tracts having a middle eastern, or African, or Indian or Celtic feel.
If you could instantly become fluent in another language, what would that language be and why?
I live in Florida it I guess Spanish is the obvious answer. But the truth is even if I didn’t live here I would choose Spanish. I love the language and have studied it. I love all things Iberia.
If you could fly or breathe under water what would you prefer?
Definitely breathe underwater. There’s so much to see. All new places to explore, places no human has gone or seen. I love being in the water, it’s so soothing.
Besides, I’m scared of heights.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful for my vacation from cooking and Kai but now I’m looking forward to more structure. Go figure
