My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Life owes me nothing, no matter how hard I work. Whatever good comes to me in the end is simply a gift and a blessing.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. People who drive too fast and thoughtlessly.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. Physically, my blue eyes and my beard.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I never learned to play a musical instrument. I'd love to be able to sit down and jam with a bunch of other musicians. What a kick that would be!
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Sitting down with a cup of coffee at sunrise every morning to write exactly what I want to write and to be worried about nothing in that moment except how to make the words sing. Life is too complicated to let this happen very often, but sometimes it all comes together and my god is it magic and does it ever make me happy.
