What is your earliest childhood memory?

When I was about 5 or 6 I was playing in the backyard with my brothers and my mom called Peter in to the house. I thought nothing of it at the time so I just kept playing. My memory is a bit fuzzy, so sometime later in the day I heard the sliding glass door close behind me from the house and I turn around to find Peter wearing glasses. It was the weirdest sight. I hadn’t seen him like that before, so as kids we just laughed and laughed because it was so weird to see. I remember him exclaiming excitedly, “Trees have leaves?” in awe at the fact that the fuzzy green haze actually held a physical structure. That’s the earliest memory I can muster.

If everything you ate for the rest of your life tasted like one food, what would it be?


What does a perfect day look like?

Waking up to the sun rising, feeling refreshed, eating avocados for breakfast, and spending the day hiking, swimming in a local river, and relaxing and reading by the water.
