Personal Quote:

I was one of seven, and we took a lot of road trips - long road trips. And this was before iPhones and iPads and DVD players in cars. I remember how novel it was when I got my own Walkman so I could listen to music. It's going to sound silly, but one of my favorites was the Out of Africa (1985) soundtrack. I loved watching the scenery go by to that music. I thought it would be a beautiful ballet. See more »
