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. 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"
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I'd like to be a long-living fly on the wall at the time when artists, musicians, writers, and other creative people find THAT moment; and the same fly when crucial decisions are made by world leaders.

A. With the same limitation, Cardinal Richelieu from Dumas's books.
