Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Never give in to self-righteousness, your own or other people's.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Having lived, on the whole quite well, off my work.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. A drink before dinner on a perfect summer evening in my garden - or somewhere similar. "Perfect happiness" implies a permanent state of happiness, but it doesn't work like that. Happiness happens in moments. Often it takes you by surprise, but you have to be open to it and able to recognise it whan it creeps up on you. "Goodness me," you say to yourself in mild surprise, "I'm actually in this moment totally happy".

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. Nothing I can write down here.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. "Too Late Now" "Have You Met Miss Jones?" "There's a Small Hotel" "Sentimental Journey" "Well, Did You Ever?"
