Joan of Arc; I've always been fascinated by her, and chose Joan as my Confirmation name.

Mary Magdalene---I want the real story.

Vincent van Gogh---my favorite artist, and such a tortured soul.

Edgar Allen Poe---another tortured genius and a magnificently gifted author.

I have always been curious to know how great women like Elizabeth the 1st, Katherine the Great, and Cleopatra so successfully ruled their worlds.

Jim Morrison

Edgar Allan Poe - I would love to find out what happened to him when he disappeared before he died.

Email or leave a message on her site? While she may not respond, she'd probably read it -eventually.

Hmm, who'd I like to meet?

Marie Curie would probably be one and I've always thought Richard Feynman was interesting and, of course, is responsible to some major contributions to physics.

And Andre Norton (Alice Mary Norton) sounds like she would have been a wonderful individual to know. Cat lover, did crafts like beading, opened a library for other writers, etc.

Jesus - but I know that I'll get to meet him in Heaven. Would have been cool to be with him when he walked on earth and seen the miracles
