Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I think perfect happiness should be within sight, but always just out of reach, otherwise what would we live for? Most days I'd settle for a balmy beach, a good book, a bottle of wine, and my kids playing in the surf (with life-jackets on so I don't have to watch them and I can read my book).
