I don't have a favorite animal, but if asked which I'd be I'd have to say sea otter, (due to sea otters' ability to build giant rafts of themselves and their loved ones tied together with seaweed).
What else? Favorite far-distant ancestor: the honorable Scottish outlaw Jamie MacPherson. Favorite family activity: telling stories. My three favorite first-person stories involve a copperhead, a supernatural thing, and a magical evening when I once put out a cigarette in a woman's designer purse that I thought was an art deco ashtray. All of which, I suddenly realize, feature compound words, and all of which I've told this summer! It's been a great summer -- I've spent a lot of time nourishing good friendships and making new ones.
Other things I love: roads -- country roads and city roads -- woods, mountains, bodies of water and my home. My home, and the desire to just drive. I've loved every home in which I've ever lived, even those that were not in nice places or easy times.
I have an MFA in poetry, so most of my favorite reads are sadly known only to others who have an MFA in poetry. But what is my single most life-changing poem, you ask? "At Pleasure Bay" by Robert Pinsky. (Note: I said 'most life-changing' -- I don't have a favorite poem -- more like a top-five list that includes about twenty).
Other favorite reads include Speak, Memory (autobiography of Vladmir Nabokov), The Autobiography of Red (novel in verse by Anne Carson) and Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Steig.
