Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Never say with eight words what you can say with nine. I don't really do mottos.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. The adoration that I inadvertently give to people I wish to be considered equal to, then finding that some presume themselves to be superior. It makes me feel abused but I think I have been at least partly responsible.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. A cat?

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Dancing. I would be an amazing dancer. All kind of dancing. Tap, tango, breakdancing, everything. I'd be the don of all things dance. For the moment I don't really dance. If you asked me tomorrow the answer might well be different.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. About a meter from where I'm sitting now.
