Name an as yet unfulfilled dream
Live in Tibet for a year
If you weren’t doing what you are, you would be …
Your go-to food.

Your favorite quote and why
From the Bible: “A tree is known by the fruit it bears.” I apply this quote to people I meet for the first time. I simply look for the fruit that tells me what type of tree (person) they are. Good trees bear good fruit and vice versa.
Name something that you are extremely glad you did or accomplished
I am glad that my search for divine spirit put me on a spiritual journey that led me to this state and to Newnan, which has become Heaven on earth for me every day for the last five years.
What advice would you give your younger self just starting out on their own
To know that every day is to learn, to do, and to be. Embrace life and live it to the fullest, listen to the still voice from within, it is divine spirit.
