'Pacific Burn' by Barry Lancet
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. A paraphrase of something I once heard: As you go the way of life, you will see a great chasm. Jump. It is not as wide as you think.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Too many. I like the Bay Area in California; France on warm days; many places in Asia; and the next place I plan to visit.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. I'd like to be multilingual. A new language opens so many doors.
Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?
A. So many, but sticking with 5 (in no particular order), Van Morrison's "Listen to the Lion," Springsteen's "Something in the Night," Ray Davis's "Waterloo Sunset," and every new gem of a rock or pop song that comes along and captures one thing well, like Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" or Colbie Caillat's "Brighter than the Sun"
Q. What do you regret most?
A. Not doing more with my life, earlier and faster.
