8 live people:
(In no particular order)
1. Stephen King, because he's cool, talented, geeky and is a homebirth fan.
2. Ina May Gaskin, because she's
3. The Dalai Lama, goes without saying. The most holy person alive, IMO.
4. Jimmy Carter. Because he's Jimmy Carter. :)
5. Cindy Sheehan, because I want to tell her how much I honour her for trying to transform her tragedy into hope.
6. Sinead O'Connor, because I think she'd just be so very interesting to talk to.
7. Sir Elton John, with Bernie Taupin along as well, because in my they're a unit. My LJ, so there. ;)
8. Sir Paul McCartney. Because he's t00by and talented and d00d. He was a Beatle.
1. Jesus of Nazareth. I'm sure he has more to say than what was written in red.
2. Mother Theresa. I think I'd feel better just being in the room with her. I wish I could be half the person she was. She really is one of my role models, and I'm not even Catholic.
3. Helen Keller. Probably my very first hero, from a very young age. She can tell me all about her work with the Wobblies and protesting WWI.
4. Rosa Parks, the woman who started an avalanche. *adores*
5. Margaret Charles Smith, one of, if not the very last Granny Midwives.
6. Woody Guthrie, and his guitar. And lots of Dust Bowl stories. I think he'd get on well with Ms. Keller.
7. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Goes without saying.
8. John Lennon. Also with guitar.
9. Dr. Perry, who attended the birth of my mother and is indirectly responsible for my being here. I'd love to talk to a country doctor about doctoring in the early 20th century.
10. Kurt Cobain. Articulate and outspoken, he'd be a great addition to the conversations. Besides, Jesus would be happy, and with the two of them plus John, the band could give an after-dinner concert.
