I've been thinking so much about Tony's answers, and really loved the challenge of channeling them into this piece.
Who are you?
I am Tony. Partner, parent and companion. A personality as developed through nature, experience, and memory.
What inspires you?
I am inspired through memory but also remembering. Remembering is a tool used in meditation so that I might fully immerse myself in a past event to fully grasp how I came to be the person I am now. Not just a memory of a room but remembering the smell of the room and reminding myself the sound of the bird out the window and just how exactly the light spilled across the aged carpet on the early fall afternoon.
What do you fear?
I fear the point of which meditating on past no longer is beneficial for self identity but rather hindering of the here and now - making me blind to the events shaping my wife, daughters, and self.
What makes you laugh?
Wittiness. A flow of conversation and smart banter. Especially as it usually requires an intimate knowledge between two people so as to work well off of one another.
