I’ve been asking people questions ever since I was a child...
On April 12th, 2007, I asked 63 first graders at JY Joyner Elementary in Raleigh, NC,

Liisa writes about herself:
A Messy, But Good Life
I have a 2-, a 4- and a 7-year old, an inventor-husband, a pretty absorbing and wonderful job, an old home in need of constant repair, too many volunteer commitments and an obsessive need to make documentary. As any working mother of young children will tell you, the only uninterrupted time to do it is before 7 am and after 10 pm. Why deprive oneself of sleep, of leisure, of romance? Perhaps it’s the need to answer some personal question? Perhaps it’s wanting to really connect with people? Or maybe it’s the joy of enabling someone to express something they needed to express? Whatever the case, it’s been a drive that’s been in me for some time. It’s just simply what I do.
