Interviewing Josh

I was feeling a little somber. What better way to feel cheer than to interview your partner, getting into his thoughts when he otherwise is slightly inaccessible with an opposing schedule? The interview questions I copied from a blog online quite awhile ago. Me and my poor organizational tendencies lost the site address. Can I be sued for such slander? Well, here goes:



What inspires you?
Art & artists, mountains, the desert, the dalai lama, the love and support of my wife (ahhh...)

Happiness is....
Peace, close family, feeling productive in mind and body

Browsing often...
Tools and equipment

Wishing for...
Stability, the right studio, future commissions, not to mention an air compressor, slip roller, V bandsaw, portable wire feeder, and a trailer.

Listening to...
A lot of NPR

Escaping with...
Sarah on a spiritually good day, alcohol on a bad!

Morning....
discipline, habit, ritual, coffee, going out for or Sarah's breakfasts.

Noon...
Bustin' it out... working

Night...
Computer browsing, a little beer, nighttime reading.

What are you looking forward to?
Finishing this project and the gallery show with it.



The future is...
Hope and anxiety, freedom and a trap, a plan and the ephemeral unexpected, what I want to be, risks to find joy, family, art, exploration, food, community, metal and clay, earth and wind, and maybe horses. Definitely breakfast.

The past is...
every demon and every joy. Who I am, who we are, a collection of phenomonological experience that makes present consciousness. This is Josh's study for the gallery show coming through.

It seems that you and I have started similar journeys. There may be some differences but we are really working hard to make a difference and really define who we are as individuals. I put a new post on today on my personal blog that I thought you might enjoy! It is listed under March 26. I would love to hear what you think!!

Hey! Good to hear from you. The food on your site made Alex and I drool - and that link "Simply Breakfast" also very drool inducing - not to mention eye candy with all the beautiful photography.

Good to see that you are just as soul searching as I remember you in college - I like deep people - hard to find - but best for interesting conversation and to challenge your thinking!

I will now be officially stalking you via your blog and you can alway email me at miriamegreen at gmail dot com (in a slight hope to avoid getting spam)!
