Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. – Winston Churchill
What’s the most interesting place you’ve been?
Yellowstone National Park. I’ve been there a couple of times. The park is so vast, there is always more to see. Wildlife and thermal features abound. A highly recommended trip – just don’t get too close to the bison or grizzly bears!
Do you have an interesting hobby?
I enjoy fly fishing. It’s a great way to spend time in the outdoors.
“Imitation of Life” with Lana Turner and Juanita Moore from 1959, one of the toughest movies about race in America and a reminder that you should never try to be something you’re not. If you be yourself, people will accept and love you for who you are more than a façade.
What’s a book you’ve recently enjoyed and why?
Crooked Road Straight: The Awakening of AIDS Activist Linda Jordan by Tina A. Brown. Linda was an icon in AIDS prevention throughout Connecticut and my aunt. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her.
