You can't just be reactive to the things going on in your life. You have to imagine, and you have to plunder other people's work, books, poems, ideas, observations.
That's what music is for me. It's a place to go to.
I guess I'm just a heart-on-sleeve type of human being.
I don't really know why I'm such an emotional person, that's just how I was born. It's a problem. It's not easy to be married to me.
In the creative act, you kind of reach down and look for things that will, when put together, create an emotional effect.
I find everything a struggle.
There's nightingales calling, shooting stars falling, like jewels in the rain.
October's gold is dim — the forests rot, The weary rain falls ceaseless, while the day Is wrapped in damp.

This disappearing world
