WHO: Tony Garrett, 60, painter

Flagpole: Do you have any hobbies?

Tony Garrett: I like to hunt and fish. That’s about it.

FP: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

TG: I guess super-consciousness, so I could always have peace. Consciousness that we’re all of the same universe. Call it God. Call it whatever you want. But it’s not random. It’s all here together. I just want to be at peace with everybody.

FP: If you could tell your 20-year-old self anything, what would it be?

TG: I guess I’d say, ‘Don’t get married.’
