- Of all the spaces in your residence, which is most powerfully your space?
I live alone, so it’s all mine, but the bed, which I only use for sleeping, has to be the most mine. Sleep is such an intimate thing, something I’m thinking a lot about lately since this sleep study and subsequent sleep apnea diagnosis. Yes, I have it. Supposed to make arrangments next week to pick up the CPAP equipment and sit through the class on how to use it properly.
- What’s the most spacious space in your everyday life?
My desk at work is in a rather spacious office. I get up all the time and pace about thirty feet in one direction and back. But I walk to work a few days each week, and some of that walking is through rather spacious areas. Lately I’ve enjoyed the way the Chinatown Cultural Plaza looks in the early predawn hours and have enjoyed walking through that section of town through which Nuuanu Stream passes.
- What’s a good song about space?
A few that leap to mind: “Space Truckin'” by Deep Purple, “Interplanet Janet” from Schoolhouse Rock, “Space Lord” by Monster Magnet, “Satellite Sky” by Mark Heard, “Brain Damage” by Pink Floyd, “Lost in Space” by Avantasia, and “Stars” by the xx.
- What’s under your bed?
Carpet! My boxspring is on the floor without a frame, and my mattress is on the boxspring. I like it this way because I’m short.
- What are your thoughts on typing one or two spaces after sentences?
I learned to type on a typewriter, so one space seems weird to me even though I know wordprocessors space everything to be visually appealing with just one. Since we use one space officially in my workplace, I’m slowly learning to type just one space after a sentence, but it’s a very difficult adjustment.
