Teatime: Meet Ann DeBellevue

Teatime: Meet Ann DeBellevue

This week’s Teatime interview is with Ann DeBellevue, our dear colleague at Kindred by way of Florida. For her full bio and contact information, please follow this link.

Name a book you loved as a kid. Is there a line or character you remember?

Rascal (by Sterling North). I still have a copy of it. It was a heartwarming story about a raccoon and a boy who adopts it. It made me want a raccoon as a pet and later on in college I had a date with a guy who owned a raccoon and, boy, was I so glad I’d never gotten one!

What did you last read? Thumbs up or down?

I’m reading Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver. I love the characters and how it goes back and forth between two different time periods.

In your next life you can be a lion, a tiger or a bear. Which do you choose and why?

I think I’d choose a lion because I could kind of live as I do now. I could be somewhat isolated but also part of the group. Tigers are just too aggressive and bears – well – bears are –  I just wouldn’t want to sleep all winter!

What is something you learned from a parent that turned out to be wise?

Whatever you have to do, do it now ‘cause it’s just going to be there later if you don’t do it now. 

There’s a new interior paint color based on you and your life. What’s its name and why?

Optimistic Blue because I don’t think I’ve ever lost my optimism.

What in the world gives you hope?

Young people. 

It’s teatime. What’s your order?

Earl Grey and some ginger snaps.
