Across the table from Haverlee

Oh, Haverlee, where to begin? We’ve known each other for years, but only recently have we really gotten close. And it’s been magic. She and I speak the same language-most of our conversations are “yes” and “same here.” Haverlee is a generous listener, a creative visionary (her photography is here), and adventurous spirit. I could go on, but I’ll save it for the voice notes we send back and forth.

Across from Haverlee.

EV: What do you want to do more of?

HC: First of all, I’m terrible at answering questions on the spot.

EV: That’s the point.

HC: More of connecting deeply with friends. I tend to be a recluse, especially in the winter. I want more live music and great food and new cities, places. But that’s kind of always my goal.

EV: That’s perfect.

HC: Generally, I want more discipline to achieve some goals that I have in my head.

EV: Less of?

HC: Less of my phone. Less of staying up too late and sleeping too late. And less wasting time.

EV: And what do you have the perfect amount of right now?

HC: Drive. I see things in my future and I feel that they’re attainable. I have just enough discomfort and confidence to make those things happen.
