I wear my shadows where they're harder to see, but they follow me everywhere. I guess that should tell me I'm travelling toward light.
There are some decision-makers in the world whose version of sanity is a little different from what I consider the right one.
A sane person doesn't think war is a good idea. I'm not a pacifist. I feel that there are situations where fighting is inescapable, but we don't go looking for those things.
It's a phobia I have. I never assume I'm going to be able to write another album after I finish one.
I'd always loved poetry and I'd always loved writing music and composing music, but I hadn't thought of putting the two together until around that time.

If I try to understand what it means to be a Christian, I look at the two instructions that were given in the Bible that are paramount, and those are to love God with all your heart and mind, and to love your neighbor as yourself. That's it.
I woke up one morning with this song in my head, and the opening line of the song is, 'My name was Richard Nixon, only now I'm a girl.'
I'm not a pacifist. I feel that there are situations where fighting is inescapable, but we don't go looking for those things.

'Each One Lost' I wrote the day after I got home. My week in Afghanistan was a very short trip, but it was a powerful experience.
'Gifts' was just a short little one-verse song that I used to close shows in the '60s.
I can't imagine my life any other way than it's been.
