If you could safely have any animal in the world as a pet, which would you choose?

I rode a horse to school through the end of high school, rain or shine. They are like family.

Do your socks always match? 
I must confess ... more often than they used to.

If you could have a superpower, what would you choose? 
Overwhelming kindness that spreads quickly like a massive plague across the globe and infects everyone everywhere forever!

What's your go-to road food?

We call it the “emergency sandwich” -- non-goopy snack made from random ingredients available at hotel lobby free continental breakfasts, stuffed into a napkin, and shoved in one’s pocket for later.

Who was the best teacher you ever had -- and why? 
Gerald Beal. He was a pathological liar and a crook, but he knew the fiddle and had a huge heart.

What's your favorite city? 
Ooh … New York has been my main hometown. New Orleans? Mexico City? Juno?

 

Salmon berry?
