My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Let me be worthy of my horses.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Strawberries. Well, strawberries and blueberries. And corn on the cob. And tomatoes warm off the vine. Okay, meatloaf once in a while.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. In the Piazza Santa Margarita, at the Due Torre; second choice: on the West Sands at St Andrews. For about two weeks, and then home.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. I have three: eating, riding, teaching.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I sure would like to be able to yodel, although there isn't much call for it in the classroom. And I'd like to be able to ride a lot better than I do, though there's still time to improve that. I hope.
