Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Breathe deeply

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Those elusive moment of utter contentment that surprise me at various times.  I might be out to dinner with good friends, look around and think this is happiness. Or with someone I love and have the same experience. Or outside in a wild place. In each case it's a recognition of that particular moment as happiness. It comes upon me; I don't seek it out.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Photography. I'm just learning how to do this. I went on a photo expedition to Alaska to get close to grizzly bears. In a few weeks I plan to get close to polar bears.

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

A. Where I am.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. This could sound a little pompous, but Edith Wharton. Not for her work (which I admire but do not identify with) but for her life, which was a huge inspiration to me.
