Please check out her blog! Maryam is a master artist. But call her a Designer. She has an eye for beauty… Her blog’s photography is magnificent! And, just for the record, I was going to nominate her for this award…until I remembered she nominated me for the award! Lolololol!
Questions for the nomination:
What are you good at?
I am a very organized fellow. I am trying to kick the habit, though…
What changes did you get through this year ?
Finding myself after 51 years of hide and seek.
If you have traveled to the place you love , what one person would you take with?
Katie Couric. Aim high.
Your aim in life?
To hit the target, whether it be with a poem, a passion or a pistol. Or even Katie Couric.
What kind of people do you prefer?
Dreamers. One who has no imagination cannot pretend to know life. Be one of the great pretenders!
Are you scared of something and yet have more courage by doing it?
I am scared of driving with a woman because I have a haunted Garmin. I always hear it even when I turn it off (“Slow down! Turn here! Have my baby!”). No, it doesn’t get any better when I keep doing it. But I am a stubborn guy and I will drive on nonetheless, no matter what the hazards, inside or outside…
Your favorite food ?
Moo Shu Pork. Hands down.
Your favorite animal ?
Pembroke Welsh Corgis. I have two (Jack and Sissy) and I don’t know what life would be like without them…
Book you like?
War and Peace by Count Leo Tolstoy. Any man who can come up with so many characters and still keep the plot interesting is worth a read. They should make it required reading for all psychiatrists, psychologists and sociologists because it is a comprehensive textbook of the human soul.
What do you think about negative people ?
I am very negative about negative people. And that’s the only good thing I can say about them.
Quote you believe in?
“The poet’s job is to put into words those feelings we all have that are so deep, so important, and yet so difficult to name, to tell the truth in such a beautiful way, that people cannot live without it.”
― Jane Kenyon
