If you were stranded on an island and could pick one thing to have with you, what would it be, and why?
Not being clever and saying something like 'a life raft' or 'a cell phone with really good service', what I'd really want is my pillow. I can't sleep on any other pillows but mine. I always bring it on vacation and even had someone bring it to the hospital when I was in it. It's a hand-ticked feather pillow, made by my Great-Nanny Tetreault and it's heavy and malleable and lovely. And I think if I were stranded on a dessert island, I want a good night's sleep for all the plotting and gathering I would have to do to survive/escape.
