If I could work with anybody creatively right now...

...I would go with Peter Cincotti.

When I listen to his songs, I automatically start constructing stories in my head that would go along with them. (Of course, I do the same thing when I people watch...or read wedding announcements in the New York Times...make-up stories that sound right. I think it's one of the things that come with a writer.)

I think Peter and I would work really well together. I think we're both sensitive and sappy and slight hopeless romantics and we could totally be the next Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim. (I'd be Laurents. He'd be Sondheim.)

And yesterday I learned something that reinforced my "Peter Cincotti and I should collaborate some day" belief...

Peter Cincotti is a complete dork. (So am I, so it's all good.)

Here's Peter backstage as he tours with Seal and documents things for his lucky fans...

Aside from being the most talented musician our generation has produced...yes, Peter Cincotti is a dork...and he's not ashamed of that fact at all, which makes it even greater.

Call me, Peter.
