What is your favorite iconic building in Lexington?

The Kentucky Theater holds so many memories for me — and being a film lover, it continues to inspire me as well.  I simply cannot imagine downtown Lexington without The Kentucky.

What four figures from history would you most like to invite to dinner if you could?

I enjoy being around other creative people, so I’d have to select from artistic history (design, literature, film, and music):

• Sister Parish and Albert Hadley(Parish-Hadley) — both design geniuses and highly influential in creating the American country and clean modernism styles that I love so much.  Sister would probably pick apart every little detail, but at least she’d keep me interested and on my toes.

• Truman Capote.  You just know he would be the consummate dinner guest.

• Actress Geraldine Page, because I adore her.  She shined in two of my all-time favorite movies —The Trip to Bountiful and Interiors.

• Though still very much alive and well, I’d love to have dinner with Joni Mitchell.  A writer, musician, painter, and intellectual — Joni’s wide-ranging brilliance continually astounds me.

What is a pet peeve you would fix if possible?
