WHAT TIME DO YOU WAKE UP? Anywhere between 4am and 2pm, depending on my work shift. WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST? Coffee with exuberant amounts of milkfoam, dark bread and cheese, a mango/passion fruit smoothie and the morning paper. ONE WORD THAT DESCRIBES YOUR MOOD IN THE MORNING? Puzzled. WHAT GETS YOUR JUICES FLOWING? Any good old soul tune. Dancing to it. And the thought that between getting up in the morning and going to bed at night, your entire world could change.
