What’s most important to you right now? 

My family.

What was most important to you before you had to social distance? 

My writing. 

What’s the first thing you’ll do when this is over? 

I moved to California to climb mountains–that was my plan this summer and I haven’t been able to do it, so that is going to be my first mission!

What are you doing to pass the time? 

I am reading nonstop, writing, drinking a lot of wine, and sitting out in the sun like a mental patient! And watching Tiger King, obviously.

What makes you happy right now?

Sitting outside. Having the ability to go sit outside. I just moved here this year, so I’m very happy did!

What would you tell yourself two months ago with the knowledge you have today?

You definitely made the right move, moving to California! I had more time than I thought to write or do whatever, but this whole thing is making people realize just how short life can be. Just go get out in the mountains right now. Just go do the things you want to do right now because you’re not always going to have the opportunity, it turns out.
