The “Can I Ask You a Question” series returns this week for the first time in a while. I’m sorry for the little break. Sometimes I get too busy to do them. I love doing the series, and you seem to really like them as well, so I will try to produce the series on a more regular basis.
This week’s question is “What is your biggest regret?” It’s a tough one, and I’ve actually had it in my head since I began the series. I guess I figured today was the day to ask it. Yes, it was scary at first. Yes, I did it anyway. Yes, I was blown away by the humanity, and how open and honest people were.
Here’s how it worked: I asked people on the street if they would be willing to participate, but I wouldn’t tell them the question ahead of time. Although they could have opted to not participate after hearing the question, all of them decided to answer the question anyway. After they answered the question, I took their portrait.
I recorded the responses and you can hear the answers directly as I heard them by pressing the play arrow next to the thumbnail version beneath the portraits.
