I recently received my daily/weekly email from Jen Louden and there was a little interview there for anyone to take.  Her and Susan Piver are giving away a space in Susan's class.  Check them both out ~ they are fabulous!

Below are my answers ~  I actually love these kinds of questions, they get us to think and they give us topics to talk about that we might not of gotten into.  I'm much better with questions then just opening up and spilling. Feel free to share yours in the comments or on your own blog!

Name:  Stef usually, Stefanie Renee to the online/creative community, Stefanie Lindeen to my home community.  But mostly just Stef to everyone.

Hometown:  I often wonder about this, where my home really is.  I moved from Wisconsin to California 13 years ago and I'm still not sure it's my home.  I currently live in the Bay Area but I sometimes feel my heart is still in the midwest.  But I sure love to travel so my home is where my family and I are presently at.

Profession:  It's funny how all these questions aren't getting straightforward answers!  I am a photographer, a project manager, a map maker, a transcriber and co-creator of Teahouse Studio...oh the list could go on.  A friend recently asked me if I could pick a focus?  Not sure I'm able to yet...

Favorite Dharma Book:  Not sure I have just one...there a couple of books I've been going back to again and again.  They are Momma Zen and Hand Wash Cold by Karen Maizen Miller and Learning to Breathe by Priscilla Warner

Deepest Wish: to feel at peace with where I'm at right now

Mantra: Give me the strength to get through today.  One step at a time.  30 seconds of courage is all it takes.

Superpower:  Listening.  & Seeing the big picture ~ being able to get you from point A to point Z.

Favorite quote: there are so many....need to think about this.

My heart is open when I: take a step back, take a deep breathe and see where I've come from and where I am today.
