Anya Taylor Joy played Beth Harmon in Queen's Gambit and was excellent.
Favorite new TV show? I don't know that I got into any new shows this year, but I am looking

Who was important to you this year but wasnít important last
Probably the person most important to me this year is Ned, but he's been
important to me for all of his life. Since I haven't really been in a

Can't think of anybody.
What was the best moment of the year for you?
Our family Zoom at Christmas.

to 102 (in September) this year so I can be with her, hoping that the pandemic
restrictions will have lifted by then.
What have you learned about yourself this year that you didnít

I wish for everyone (me included) the ability to hug everyone again. I'd

I wish for better handling of the pandemic after the transition."
What do you wish for yourself?
To have the freedom to see my mother again.
