I can’t help myself, I really like answering Word Press prompts in this throw down interview style. So here is one more, I hope it pleases.
WordPress: Did you have a secret hiding place?
Erin Virgil: Yes, inside my childhood dollhouse. It got found by my nosy sister and brother. Another place I hid stuff: in boxes in closets, either very low down or very high up.
WP: What do you miss?
EV: Having a wide open mind that believed in fairies, trolls under bridges, dragons, Santa, talking trees, multiple gods and goddesses, books with moving pages, and direct trans-dimensional communication, among other beautiful lost things. And, living in the mountains, sometimes I miss the ocean.
WP: How do you know when you’re right?
EV: If nothing bad happens as a direct consequence of whatever I did “right”. If it still seems right a week later, if the decision doesn’t keep me up at night, it’s right. My compass moves slowly, like a grandfather clock on Valium.
WP: What jobs do you wish you had?
EV: National Geographic photographer, horoscope writer, astronaut (obviously), forensic pathologist, vampire (or even, vampire forensic pathologist), and costume designer for a historical epic set in 18th century England, with lots of lovely empress waist dresses, small lace-up shoes and foppish top hats.
WP: What is your favorite day of the week, and why?
EV: It must be Friday. I leave the failures of the week behind, the weekend has just started, there can be anticipation. Friday evening has a certain energy to it; even if you don’t go anywhere or do anything particularly interesting, it feels different than other nights.
WP: When is it a good time to quit?
EV: While you’re still having fun.
