Remarkable response, really. Maybe THAT's the mark of genius--having the equanimity to reply to a questionnaire like this, and to do so eloquently. If I didn't run out of the room at first sight, I might start on the questionnaire, but then after the first question, my vision would darken and narrow, my mind would dissolve into blankness, and my face would settle into a scowl of aversion. I wonder, were I to mimic the characteristics he describes, if I might accomplish some tiny fraction of what he did (although I've already exceeded his life span considerably, so maybe I should just enjoy my tea and read about him).
