Where Peaceful Waters Flow

What calms you down?
Looking at something natural at a distance, ideally something blue or green: water, leaves, green grass, sky and clouds. When I do that I can instantly stop thinking. It gives me a feeling of peace, of connection, of groundedness, and then I can stop taking myself and my own little problems too seriously.

Whats your favorite fantasy sandwich?
Provided they’re vegetarian, I am partial to all kinds of sandwiches: classic cucumber, grilled cheese and tomato, on occasion even peanut-butter and jelly.

What was your nickname growing up either as a kid or now?
I tend to go by my initial “K”.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
If I were a crayon, I’d be a Jaxon 2000 ultramarine blue, which is a highly saturated deep blue, tending to purple. My absolutely favourite colour! 🙂 And the crayons are a dream…

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?
Short stories. I’ve come to enjoy the 100-word-genre both as a reader and writer. Novels are too much like work and I know I’m no poet.

If you had only one book you could write what would it be about? 
I’d write Heresy. Why a lot of what we unthinkingly believe is wrong & how if we challenge some of that, we can make the world a better place.

Did you watch the opening of the Olympics in London?  What was your favorite part of the opening?
Bits of it. Rowan Atkinson on the piano. Lol.

What is your favorite summer Olympic event or events?
All this youthful enthusiasm and dedication is very impressive, but I’ve grown cynical about the Olympic oath. I believe that in many events noone has a chance of even qualifying without doping. And I’m not sure if we’re doing young people a favour by collectively pretending we don’t know that. So I feel ambivalent about the whole thing…

1.  What type of pets do you have or want?
I’d love to have a dog. As a surrogate I enjoy reading dogblogs, like those written by Bongo or Patch. And of course I have Bertie!

2. Would you rather take pictures or be in pictures?
Take them, any time. I hate being photographed.

3. What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Opening and filing correspondence. I’d rather wash windows!

4. What’s your least favorite mode of transportation?
Buses on long trips. Is this a legacy from schooldays?
