What have you read or seen over the past year that moved or surprised you?

         I have watched my adopted son grow, change, walk, laugh and become a person.

What are you listening to right now?

         A really really early Mozart opera whose name escapes me. Also Julio Cesar by G.F. Handel.

What’s the last great book you read?

         A House for Mr. Biswas by V.S. Naipaul

What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

         I’m a huge fan of all Sci-Fi, doesn’t matter if it’s bad or good. If there are goblins and machines, I love it. Game of Thrones qualifies that for me because there are dragons.

What’s your favorite comfort food?

         Spaghetti, marinara and sausage.
