1. Hyde Park Interview for Locals

Thanks for volunteering to be interviewed for my blog! Feel free to write as much or as little as you like for each item-- all I ask is that you answer all of the questions honestly and thoughtfully. I intend to post all Q&A responses I receive, but there may be a lag of a few weeks. If you like, you can send me a picture of yourself and/or any favorite pictures of Hyde Park to run with the interview at MsHydePark@gmail.com. Also, if you're open to it, please let me know your twitter handle or email address so I can touch base with you if I have any follow up questions, and to let you know when you'll be featured. Thanks!
