A. I'm content to be me. I'd like to have fewer crow's feet, but they've been well-earned.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I believe perfect happiness comes in waves and that it's the result of a collision between perfect understanding and absolute appreciation. It's like having a brief glimpse into the perfection of everything and feeling completely comfortable with whatever I'm going through, good or bad. For me, these waves hit most often when I'm with my children or out of doors: my face in the sun; when I'm near the ocean; walking in the woods.
