Favorite Quote: “Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.” -Susan Sontag

Favorite Berkey Creamery Flavor: I might be an outlier here! I don’t have one!
