My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be kind.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I admire a great many living people, some of whom I’ve never met (every struggling single parent in the world doing her/his/hir best to raise children against the odds has my admiration, for example). But since I’m being asked to choose one, I’ll pick Malala Yousafzai.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?



Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Losing my loved ones.

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

A. Some kind of dessert. Molten chocolate cake topped with vanilla ice cream perhaps. My life span would be brief, but it would make somebody VERY happy.
