What smell do you find irresistible?
The medley of smells on Christmas morning when kids are opening presents - pine needles from the Christmas tree, chocolate and bubbly, coffee and toast and all the various scents of packaging; Christmas paper, tinsel and exotic cardboard boxes.
What is your least favourite thing about humanity?
Malicious petty mindedness - deliberately hurting people in weaker positions, obsessing about the small wrongs and personal slights instead of the big picture. Give me someone with a big generous heart any day.
What is one strong childhood memory?
Travelling from Invercargill to Milford with my Dad in our Bradford van, in 1954. It was a camping trip and he introduced me to all the native forest birdlife. The area was definitely the wild frontier in those days.
What is your message?
The world is rapidly and irrevocably changing, and not for the better. Things will only improve if we ourselves have the courage to change ourselves even more and faster.
If you were going to an island and could take only three things, what would they be and why?
My grandkids with whom I could spend quality time because I'm not working. A camera without a phone function. A malfunctioning alarm clock.
