Michelle Evans

Eugenia would like to know:

michelle_evans

What will you be when you grow up?
Retired

What makes you happy?
My wife, my dogs, my family and friends

What is happiness?
That moment when you notice yourself smiling for no particular reason

Do you prefer the great outdoors or the great indoors? What do you do there?
Both – I love walking my dogs especially in ordinary outdoor places of few people that I find extraordinary through the experience of me watching the joys on my dogs faces. Indoors I love snuggling up on the couch with my wife watching TV, reading, snoozing or playing on my iPad

Do you look at or avoid mirrors?
Both – depends what time of the day!

What’s your favourite colour?
Yellow

Tell me about a song OR scene from a film that evokes a particular time, memory, experience, story for you…
I really enjoyed love The Goonies it reminds me of the much smaller scale bush/town adventures me, my sisters and friends would have when we were growing up in Cessnock NSW

What’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?
The smiling loving eyes of my wife

If you have travel planned for the future, where will you go and what will you do there?
Alaska – I can’t wait to just be there, talk to the people, listen to stories, visit museums, trudge around and soak up the northern lights

Ever wanted to know what it’s like in another person’s shoes? Who would you consider swapping a day in your life with? Why?
I would love to experience what it would be like to think, see and know the world from a completely different world view and a different language – the Saami people of the arctic talk about reindeering as knowing I’d love to immerse myself in that world view
