My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Here's what I put in my high school yearbook, and I do believe it's what I'd still put today: Walk slowly; all you can ever come to is yourself.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. I admire my mother a whole bunch, and I always have.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Perfect happiness would be that first and only small cup of coffee, made with my camping drip filter into a mug I bought in Mexico (and which probably contains lead, something I prefer not to think about), into which I add a dollop of heavy whipping cream, and sitting in the dark in front of my Christmas tree conjuring the faces of the people I most love in the world. Since that describes my early morning today, I guess I was perfectly happy around 4:30 a.m. today.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Chinese dumplings, either pan-fried, boiled, or steamed.
Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?
A. Kindness, integrity and humor.
