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. What do you regret most?

A. Regrets are a waste of time. (That doesn't mean I don't have any.)

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Long-Limbed Girl, by Nick Lowe. Hey Ya, by Outkast. Amazing Grace. If You Want Me, by Marketa Irglova. Prelude in E Minor, Chopin. Johnny Cash's cover of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. (That's six, you say? Hang on, I have 827 more to go.)

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

A. To fly, using just my arms. Fly, fly, fly! Sometimes, when I dream, I'm swooping up and over mountain after mountain. How I would love to do that for real.

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

A. Right here, right now.
