My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. A paraphrase of something I once heard: As you go the way of life, you will see a great chasm. Jump. It is not as wide as you think.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Limiting myself to the characters of deceased authors, I'd say Jean Valjean (in the book).
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. To my detriment, "Yes, I'll have another."
Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?
A. With the same limitation, Cardinal Richelieu from Dumas's books.
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. So many, but sticking with 5 (in no particular order), Van Morrison's "Listen to the Lion," Springsteen's "Something in the Night," Ray Davis's "Waterloo Sunset," and every new gem of a rock or pop song that comes along and captures one thing well, like Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" or Colbie Caillat's "Brighter than the Sun"
