….or How Well Do You Know Yourself?


Sit yourself down Jon and answer a few questions

I know Jon as a harmony singer, guitar player, photographer and woodsman. He does a great cover of Red Winged Blackbird by David Francey and knows more sea shanties than I knew existed. Here is a little more about who he is behind the scenes:

What is your first memory? 
I actually remember sitting in my high chair being fed baby food by my father. I guess that began my life-long obsession with food. 
What is your favourite flavour? 
I suspect I share this in common with half the world. Chocolate. 
If you could have pursued another profession other than the one you are in, what would it be? 
I think I would have been an archaeologist. I have an insatiable curiosity and archaeology is all about literally digging for information. 
Which talent would you most like to have? 
While I dabble in a bit of music now, I really wish I could be a great guitar player. I have friends who are great musicians and I know that when they are really playing intensely they are transported somewhere else. I would really like to be able to go there. 
What quality do you most admire in a man? A woman? A child? 
The quality I admire most in any other human being is an ability to really connect with others. Some people have the ability to deeply empathize with people. I think children come by it naturally but often have it taken out of them by the world around them. 
Who was your favourite Sesame Street character? 
Definitely Kermit. He transcended Sesame Street and was everywhere in the Henson universe.
Who is your favourite writer? 
I have several but I think Ray Bradbury is my first choice. His book “Something Wicked This Way Comes” is on of the first books I ever read and it made a huge impression on me. 
Ray Bradbury
What movie have you watched the most times? 
It is a toss up between the Star Wars trilogy and the Lord of the Rings series. I still take some guilty pleasure in watching the original space operas.

What would be your ideal Sunday afternoon relaxation? 
My favourite Sunday afternoon relaxation is either in the woods or on the seashore observing nature and wildlife.

What is your favourite word? 
I think my favourite word is “heritage” because it carries so much meaning. It encompasses not only history but our part in it. 
If you had to choose a pen name what would it be? 
Bartholomew J Wilson.
If you had to choose a porn name what would it be? 
Rock Rockston
What would you do on an ideal date? 
Great meal in a good restaurant and a good music concert. 

What famous piece of art would you most like to own? 
Pretty well anything by Salvadore Dali. 
What do you consider the greatest invention of your lifetime? 
The Internet. It has the potential to save us as a species if we do things right. 
Where do you feel most at home? 
I feel most at home riding my motorcycle out the Portobello Road. 
If you could invent something, what would it be? 
A catheter device for sleeping in a tent. 
If you could ask the queen one question, what would it be? 
How do you stay so healthy?
Healthy Old Liz

 What song defines your life? 
American Pie by Don McLean.

What is your mother’s best trait? Your father’s? 
My Mother’s best trait was her imagination. My Father’s best trait was his ability to recognize skills in people. 

Thanks for the mental challenge. Not often lately I use that part of my brain. – Jon
And thank you Jon.
