A Legacy of Diamonds
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. I don’t have one, perhaps because I grew up speaking two languages. Idioms and proverbs don’t tend to translate well. It was years before I learned that one doesn’t steal a parade, but rather rains on it.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. Not picking ‘artist’ as my profession on job day in kindergarten; I panicked and went with cowgirl.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. I was recently told I have aristocratic ankles, but I’m not quite sure I know what that means.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Being with those you love, doing what you love to do (well)
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. This changes almost daily, and I listen to a lot of music. At the moment, though: Sunny Road (Emiliana Torrini), La Legierezza (Franz Liszt), Everyday (Rogue Wave), Better (Regina Spektor), 99 Luftballons (Nena), rotating songs by The Pixies
