What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?
The Grand Canyon back in either 2000 or Summer 2001.
How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order?
One. My brother Stephen. I am the oldest. Stephen is two years younger than me.
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?
Probably a sneaker or sandals. Not sure what brand. Maybe Reebok or New Balance. Sneakers signal spring, summer and fall. An opportunity to go walking because the weather has warmed up.
Right now I mostly wear my Ugg boots because of the cold and inclement weather. Even though I was born and raised in New York I loathe and despise winter. Looking forward to wearing my sneakers and then my sandals.
What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
Squid, when I was in Spain.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
That’s difficult to answer because there has been so much upheaval in the country due to these horrible polices which are adversely affecting my Muslim friends. Especially my Iranian girlfriend and co-worker who is now in a bind. She is hurting therefore I am hurting. Best I’ve been able to do so far is to share the situation via my blog and to organize a Prayer Chain for her and all Muslim/Arabic peoples worldwide. All are welcome to join the Prayer Chain no matter what religious faith that you practice.
I have friends from Iran, Iraq and Yemen. I also know people from the Sudan. All honest hardworking, kind, gentle and compassionate folks. So I guess the answer is that I’m glad that I have friends from all races and religions. I extend my Welcome and Love to all! I have been to both Hindu and Buddhist Houses of Worship. So I’m glad that I can pray for all my co-workers and friends.
Can’t say Looking forward to because I don’t know what is going to happen but My prayer, wish and deepest desire is that this Muslim Ban will be lifted and once again my Muslim and Arab friends will be able to travel freely and can stop living in fear.
