My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Here's what I put in my high school yearbook, and I do believe it's what I'd still put today: Walk slowly; all you can ever come to is yourself.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Perfect happiness would be that first and only small cup of coffee, made with my camping drip filter into a mug I bought in Mexico (and which probably contains lead, something I prefer not to think about), into which I add a dollop of heavy whipping cream, and sitting in the dark in front of my Christmas tree conjuring the faces of the people I most love in the world. Since that describes my early morning today, I guess I was perfectly happy around 4:30 a.m. today.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I'm kind.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I can bend my hands up into strange, saucer-like formations. It's creepy.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Thick white china mug."
