THE QUESTIONED CONVERGE: In July 2013, longtime Indy contributor and film fest head honcho Roger Durling began subjecting Santa Barbara’s most interesting people to the Proust questionnaire, and we’ve been running the insightful, quite personal results on our website every Monday since. Last Thursday, most of “the questioned” converged on the new Santa Barbara Collective wine tasting room in the Funk Zone for a casual get-together, where Durling treated them to this Proust line: “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
