My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Breathe deeply
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. What’s your best quality?
A. Well, what I like best about myself is that pretty much everything is interesting to me and most of what's interesting is also very funny.
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. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Where I am.
