My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Everything at this moment is exactly as it should be
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. In my life, I have been guilty of holding "Perfect Happiness," out in the future as the illusive goal. I hope I have come to a point of realising that happiness, or better contentment, is a question of going inward. It is perfect happiness to realise that perfect happiness was there all along.
Otherwise, a bar of almost anything made by Cadbury would qualify.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. You're looking at it. On one level. On another level, my children.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Zorba would rank up there.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I sort of regret going to university at eighteen and not really having any bearings. In a sense my eight years of education was wasted on me. Still, all roads lead to where I stand.
