I am honored to be included in the Liebster Awards. The questions for my response appear below with my five nominations and questions for the nominees.

(1)  What is your “super power”—an obscure talent or skill that you know (or have been told) is particularly good?  For example, some people are super-recognizers, super-tasters, or are particularly empathetic.

Ans: My super power is something I, or anyone else, might not suspect. I am a teacher. This talent is attributed to a genuine care for others that is partnered with patience. Most people consider me aloof as a first impression, making the care and patience a surprise.

(2)  When you were little, what did you want to be when you “grew up”?

I wanted to be a superhero! Righting wrongs appeared to be very worthwhile endeavor.

(3)  Name a book or movie you’ve read or watched at least three times and explain why you did.

Big Fish. It is a remarkable parable of life that embraces why I write. I also find the reconciliation between son and father a remarkable story that never fails to move me to tears.

(4)  What’s your favorite first name that is not your own?  What do you like about it?

James is a favorite first name. It was my father’s name and I admired his scientific and artistic mind. James always seemed to me the respectful title for the combination.

(5)  Where in the world would you like to be in 10 years?  Why?

First of all, I’d like to be here doing what I do – only better. I’d like to be a published author remarkable for his inspiration to other late-bloomers! Life is not over until I sing!
