I love to read. I usually have a couple of books going at a time (one in the morning and one at night) and enjoy listening to audio books or podcasts if I’m making a meal or doing laundry or mowing the lawn. I actually do this to a fault.
If I had to choose a last meal, it’d probably be a cheeseburger of some sort. Although, my sweet Caroline makes a lasagna that is very difficult for me to stop eating once I start.
I’m totally into all kinds of things I used to think were stupid. Some examples: meditation, yoga, affirmations, mindfulness, spirituality, goal-setting … and drinking ridiculous amounts of water every day.
I have two middle names: William and Stewart. They are grandfathers’ names and I’m proud to have them.
Okay, perhaps I lied. I watch the Stars Wars shows when they come out on Disney+ (like The Mandalorian).
I must have watched through The Imagineering Story docuseries on Disney+ a half-dozen times. I’ll probably do the same with Light & Magic.
Things I still have sentimental attachments to, since I was a little kid: Mr. T, Kermit the Frog (I used to call him “Kurt the Throg”), Han Solo, Bugs Bunny, Popeye and the Millennium Falcon.
Whenever I see a red cardinal, I feel it’s my Grandma Newkirk’s spirit.
I don’t have a favourite colour or number and I don’t think I’m superstitious.
The book “Conscious Living” by Gay Hendricks changed my life.
“Ask and It Is Given” by Abraham, Jerry & Esther Hicks changed it again.
“Becoming Supernatural” by Dr. Joe Dispenza changed it for a third time, along with Wim Hof, who has me breathing deeply, taking cold showers and jogging through the snow … and enjoying it.
Okay, I lied. I like black (does that count as a colour? Okay … blue is second).
I have Superman logos all over the house. It started when I decided the “S” stood for sober, and that helped me quit drinking for good back in June of 2015.
