Super Punch Interview: Susan Sanford

Meet Susan Sanford:

1. What is you idea of the perfect day?

Hours and hours of free-ranging conversation with someone who likes to toss around ideas while in motion, that is, traversing a physical landscape, so that the flow of ideas matches the rhythm of walking.

2. Describe on of the best moments of your life

In a room where every person had been given a candle, about one hundred and thirty of us, listening to a story being read aloud. This is like all moments when one is in the moment and takes time to look around while inside it, I have it forever.

3. What is your most common nightmare?

Anything that smacks of confinement or limitation of vision, bashing through a wall that then reveals another wall.

4. What are your three favorite possessions?

My miraculous digital camera that sees better than I do. A rock I found on the beach many years ago, which has a sort of picture on either side, and I would name a book, but it's hard pick just one...maybe Sheri Tepper's "The Family Tree"

5. What is your goal for 2011?

For that, or any year...Oh. trying to know the things I know, really know, more of the time...because I realize Important Things quite vividly (as do we all) and then they slip away. My goal for THIS year is to get some of my work into book formats.

6. What superpower would you most like to have?

None - I think something humbler, just showing up and being disciplined. I think I might get bored with a superpower. Is frustration the spice of life?
