Lonliness that comes from living among people but not engaged with them.
Where would you like to live?
Anywhere but this cold rock.
What is your idea of earthly happiness?
Living as my true self.
To what faults do you feel most indulgent?
Obsession. I want to know who I am. Who I really am.
Who are your favorite heroes of fiction?
The ones who smile at death and frown at victory; with victory comes boredom.

My mother...whoever she was; and Yareli: Nobody is a better sister.

Can she outthink and outfight me? I like her.
Your favorite painter?
Your favorite musician?
The quality you most admire in a man?
Wisdom; restraint when he most wants to act; action when restraint would have been best. Me? I'm the act-first-and-regret-later-if-I-must kind of guy.
The quality you most admire in a woman?
She's good in her skin because she knows being a woman is more powerful than man any day, and yet, she doesn't act like a man to make her point. She doesn't have to.
Your favorite virtue?
There's a stratification system?
Your favorite occupation?
Ed-docs, definitely. A guy can't have too much education even if he's just a hydroponics farmer.

Anything warm. Warm colors are life. Cool colors remind me of a morgue.

We don't have flowers here. I've seen them on an ed-doc, though. A rose? Maybe a lily. I like how they are both flowers but opposites.
What is your favorite bird?
I'll tell you when we get birds someday.

In dire situations, when pushed to it, those who lay down their lives for others.

How many more dumb questions do we have?

Diplomacy. Please.

As I've lived: in motion.

You can't tell?
