But enough of what I have to say. I decided to find out what others might say about me. Here goes, unexpurgated and unvarnished:
"He is the best listener I know, genuinely interested, curious, questioning - and he remembers what you say. I love to talk with him about politics, theatre, people, really just about anything because what he says is thoughtful, original, informed, perceptive. And he's never, ever boring. He's funny - very funny (and he appreciates that you're funny), sharp and smart, sweet and kind, generous, loving, warm and human."
"He balances a soulful nature with intellectual rigor. His sense of humor and compassion are prized, as is his ability to bring out the best in those he cares about."
