Meet Vastarien202!

We caught up with new member Vastarien202 and asked a few fun questions. Get to know your new community member and don't forget to say Hello!

EP: Good afternoon and welcome. Wonderful to have you join us. Let's get started right away. If you could meet any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?

Vastarien202: Pleasure to be here. I like how you think. I would like to meet Ray Bradbury again. I saw him once many years ago, and he was such an amazing and gentle man.
He only has one story to tell, but he makes it fresh and tender and scary and funny all at once. He truly is one of humanity's most profound treasures, and someone should tell him so every hour of every day.

EP: Really interesting. When you are 100 and looking back at your life, what do you want to be able to say?

Vastarien202: Tough one. I want to be able to say......I saw the beauty in a new-cast brick, the strength in a feather, the horror in the eyes of a new mother, the pride in the smile of a criminal, and the utter and complete loss written on the face of a graduate.
I have done things I am not proud of, yet the things I have done well far outnumber them. I can pass on peacefully knowing that I have not changed the world, but changed myself into someone deserving of it.

EP: Readers, I hope you have your notebooks out. What activity have you always wanted to try, but haven't yet? Why?

Vastarien202: Funny that you ask. I'd like to go sky-diving, but I have nowhere near the courage to try it.
The spectere of my shin-bones impaling my kneecaps like a gristly shish-kabob on the way to embedding themselves in my collar-bone is far to real to ignore.

EP: Well put! I couldn't have said it better myself. Well, that concludes our up close and personal interview with Vastarien202 . Stay tuned readers, for our next New Member Interview.
