This past weekend, the Wall Street Journal did a story on Isabella Rossellini, daughter of Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini. She had an illustrious career as a model and actress, and now lives on a farm in New York State. The article gives prompts, and she filled in the rest.

Yes! My sentiments exactly!
