col gets interviewed


I interviewed my boy Col for NPR's National Day of Listening. We went snowboarding together on Friday after Thanksgiving and I interviewed him on the way to the mountain, at the mountain, in the lift and then finally at home. I thought the location was very fitting.

Colin couldn't understand why I wanted to interview him. It's not because he has a lot of history under his belt--he's only 32 years old. But we both lead very busy lives and sometimes we can go through an entire week without really talking to each other. It felt good to set aside an hour of time to have a conversation and get to know each other again. He enjoyed it too, I think, and was honored to be asked.

Here are some excerpts from our conversation:

On personal accomplishments:




A favorite memory:




On life influences:

Great interviews! I really loved listening to Col reminisce, all the while trying to figure out where you guys were inbetween Sugarbush and Stowe...I noticed how many farms there were, and recognized that farm on the corner as you turned left on 100 toward Waterbury! Neat! It was lovely that Colin didn't show weirdness at being interviewed, but went ahead and really put a lot of thought into the answers. I hope he gets to interview you, even though the day has passed...do we have to wait a whole year before we view that interview?! I have been thinking about your questions, and answering them myself. So often, we don't take the time to think about these things, we just barge ahead like a river, not looking back, but roaring on toward the ocean...Thank you for taking the time to interview your best friend! x Mama

If I didn't love you, I'd hate you for being so cute. This was such a fun post!! I back Kev and Emi's kudos to Colin for giving such thoughtful, complete answers. Being interviewed can be scary! I loved it...nice post Soe.

Having open and frequent dialogue about every day things like work and school, as well as bigger things like life dreams and aspirations, has really benefited our marriage. It's so easy to get too busy to talk to each other! That's why it's important to build a routine and ask each other these types of questions on a regular basis. I love the post!!! xoxo Emi
