Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Quotidian" and a French expression: 'On verra'... which means "We'll see". Which kind of sums up my world-view.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Is there such a thing? Happiness, for me, is a moment here-and-there when everything that crowds your life drops away and you are simply aware of the pleasure of the moment.
Or perhaps it's walking Popham Beach near my house in Maine - and the most beautiful beach in New England - with
my two very wonderful children, Max and Amelia, on a winter's day when we had the entire three miles of sand to ourselves, and nothing really mattered except that we were all together on this extraordinary stretch of the Maine Coast.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Being a good father and a great friend to my children, Max and Amelia.

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

A. Where I am right now - in my house in Maine. I also live in Paris and London and Berlin - but Maine is home. I spent thirty years living outside of the United States, But then I came back - and Maine was the place I decided to hang my hat. It was the right call.
