We're operating on a two-hour delay this morning because of the icy roads here. Harry cooked us a pancake breakfast before heading off to work and while we ate I asked Maia if I could interview her for my blog.

JEAN: So, what do you like to eat for breakfast, Maia?

MAIA: Pancakes, waffles, and french toast. (giggles) I almost said french fries instead of french toast for breakfast! (more giggles)

JEAN: I heard you tell Daddy last night that you wanted to change your name. What name would you rather have?

MAIA: Rosabella. Cause it's a pretty name.

JEAN: Hmm. Yes. That is a pretty name. Okay, next question. If you could do anything in the world, what would you do?

MAIA: Do art with you.

JEAN: What kind of art do you like to make?

MAIA: Every kind! Every single kind of art!

JEAN: What's your favorite color?

MAIA: Every color! Every color in the whole world! (pause) Let's do favorite flowers now.

JEAN: Okay, what's your favorite flower, Maia?

MAIA: Every kind, because they are so beautiful and cute!

Okay, sensing a trend, I decided that was enough insight into 5-year-old Maia's world for the moment.

    What a great interview with Maia. And I have to agree with her on her favorite colors. She seems amazing, by the way. You are doing something magical, Jean.

    Here is a quote I thought you would appreciate:

    I believe all creative people are children at heart.
