Favorite angle from which to take a photo: From behind
Favorite thing to do with a child: Hold him in the rocking chair until both he and I are asleep.
Favorite piece of jewelry:
I have all five of our names engraved equidistantly around this bangle. Alex got it for me (from Sticky J, per my instructions). I like it because I’ll catch sight of one of our names and take a minute to think about that person. I like the never-ending circle aspect of it too. I got one each for my sister and her partner with their and their kids’ names. They love them too.
Favorite color: Orange
Ever since (long ago) reading William T. Vollmann‘s book of short stories, The Rainbow Stories, in which he repeatedly refers to orange as scintillant, I have been unable to shake the beauty I feel when I think of the color. That one descriptive word created this whole, amazing vision of orange for me.
Favorite thing about more than one child: Brotherly love
