Most comforting place, smell, sound, memory. The cushy single person chair in my parents’ living room, roast beef in the oven, James Taylor songs, and playing cards with my family when I was a kid. One time I cheated and stacked the deck so that one of the four of us would get the best bridge hand of all time, ensuring a victory. Our old neighbor ended up with it. To this day, he thinks that for one fleeting moment, he was the luckiest man on Earth.
Greatest personal achievement. From an outsider perspective, I think most would say moving to France. However for me, I would say it was handing in this one short story in my last creative writing class in college. A girl whose writing I’d loved and respected like crazy came up to me before class and told me that she read mine and thought “wow, that’s a real fiction writer”. It was basically the nicest compliment I’ve ever gotten. (Also our zine, stunglikehell, because it was amazing. The most proud I’ve ever been of school work.)
