My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. See above.

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

A. Swimming in clear blue water off a tropical beach, looking forward to lunch.

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

A. Cary Grant. Or maybe Mick Jagger. I can't stand his music, but, boy, he must have had a good time.
