Hello there invisible audience! I really like you and I want to interview you!
I am always interested in meeting new people, hearing their stories and connecting. Every person has such a unique perspective on life. I like to think that I can keep learning through conversations with new people.
We are curious about makers and creators that are in the community. We want to dig into your brain and thought process. Would you be willing to share your life experience as creator, designer, mover, shaker, gardener, singer, artist-er, mother, father, sister...brother.
Do you know anyone we should interview? Would you let us interview you?
Here, I will make it easier and go first:
Hi, I am Juli Eagle. You may have seen me around town carting along my 5-year-old, Evan, and my 15-month-old, Theodore. We do quite a bit of stuff together, everything really.
I work as a Communications Manager for an awesome health care organization located in Northern California. I feel blessed to work for people who truly care about everyone in our community.
I went to school for Journalism and Mass Communications, I found myself in a lot of Art History classes.
I like wine and pizza.
(Yes this is me interviewing myself.)
What do you think about when you are alone in your car?
I think about my kids, our future, how to make it the best and what I can do to in the next day to reach our goals. – I also have freakishly intense worries about things I couldn’t possibly control (Driving constantly reminds me how dangerous cars are) and those often keep me on edge but I do my best to ignore my worst fears.
Cat or Dog person?
Both. I am an animal lover, and now a Mother, which is surprisingly opposing! I love cats, but they have a tendency to be annoyed by little humans. I love dogs, but they require as much attention as my Littles. Right now we are without a pet, but I am working on a perfect scenario for a new family member. But I have a feeling if we get a new furry family member it will be a spur of the moment kind of thing!
What is the song of the week for you?
I saw this video by Keone & Mariel Madrid dancing to “Happy” by C2C. Ev and I can’t stop coming back to YouTube to watch it. AMAZING.
If we came to your house for dinner what would you prepare for us?
Ideally I would have a large, lovely garden to host dinners. Growing up I ate outside about 6 months out of the year, it doesn’t feel like relaxing unless there is a breeze on my cheek and the scent of a garden nearby.
I would in all likelihood cook something simple, meat, vegetable, grain, cheese, wine and dessert. Right now we are eating a lot of vegetables at home, everything roasted with olive oil, sea salt and pepper.
I am officially hungry now.
What kitchen utensil would you be?
I love a fork! I know that a spork would be the most intelligent choice, but I for some reason have an emotional bond with forks. They aren’t quite a jack of all trade, but they certainly get the job done.
When you are 80 years old, what would you tell your children?
I think I would tell my children and grandchildren what I would tell them now at this exact moment: don’t get distracted by the day-to-day stress of working, making money or buying more things. Spend your days with your family, forgive, love with all your heart and make the most of each day.
It is hard for me to not always look to the future and how to get there. Everyday I work on being grateful and being present.
There. That really wasn't so hard!
We have some people in mind to interview, so they could share their stories with us, their lessons and maybe provide everyone with some inspiration!
