The cover of this 1992 book looks cooler in the picture than it does in my hand. Through some trick of the light, the pattern looks raised, but it is not. This book contains answers from dozens of famous and not-so-famous people to 50 unusual questions — about their first memories, unexpected moments, treasured possessions, people who influenced them, things worth waiting for, and so on.
It Takes My Breath Away
Biting into a ripe peach.
A Frank Lloyd Wright house. Just the perfection of it. The incredible balance and design and flow.
Life takes my breath away. There’s a great book out about going through life with blinders on. That was me all my life. I remember one day getting into a glass hotel elevator. I looked downstairs where they had a goldfish pond. And I thought about it. Those goldfish would stay there forever. They’re never going to go anyplace. They’re going to live in that goldfish pond. And that’s how life was for me for many years. To me life is about letting go and being there — really getting out, stepping out. That’s exciting.
