Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Love is a verb." Also, "You don't get what you don't ask for."

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I would be a much better pianist. I play classical piano but it's such a struggle. I love it, and would so love to feel at ease while making beautiful music.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Empathy.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Selfishness, and a lack of compassion for others. But I have grammatical pet peeves, too, lots of them! "Comprised of." Using adverbs improperly. "Like" when "such as" or "as if" is correct. Failing to use the subjunctive tense when it is appropriate -- as in, "Dance like no one is watching." Yikes!

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. With every woman who has recognized that true power comes from within.
