Dana Gynther
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Experience is one thing you can't get for nothing." Oscar Wilde (who else?)

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Pasta-- all different kinds: various shapes and colors, fresh or dried, filled or unfilled, Asian or Italian, and topped with myriad sauces.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Damp towels on the bed?

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

A. As a person or thing, just myself, though there are a number of animals that I would love to be for a day: hummingbird, whale, sloth, flying squirrel....

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Although there are many historical figures that would make me stand in silent awe (Susan B. Anthony, for one), it would have been good fun to meet Kiki de Montparnasse (née Alice Prin). Bohemian, lively and gregarious, she was a model, artist, singer, but mainly a good-time girl who defined Paris in the interwar period.
