Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Only connect.

Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. Right here. Right now. (I'm sure that's the Zen sort of thing everyone says, but it's truly what I strive for. Sometimes achieve.)

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. No matter how much life may stink at times, I can't imagine wanting to be anyone else. Then I'd have to deal with their problems. I mean, everyone has problems. I, at least, know and own mine. (Plus, as my mother-in-law once said in between radiation treatments for breast cancer: Life is fun!)

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Passion. Introspection. Willingness to connect.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. 1) "Southern Cross" by Crosby, Stills, & Nash. 2) "Rock Song" which I wrote for my husband, Graeme, on our wedding, played by Sean Stanley (you can listen at www.byjanna.com). 3), 4), and 5) Anything sung by The Weepies in general or Deb Talan in particular.
