I don't have very sophisticated taste in music. I listen to a lot of folk music. I like reggae.
I try to write the books I would love to come upon that are honest, concerned with real lives, human hearts, spiritual transformation, families, secrets, wonder, craziness - and that can make me laugh.
I see that children fill the existential hollowness many people feel; that when we have children, we know they will need us, and maybe love us, but we don't have a clue how hard it is going to be.
These days cry out, as never before, for us to pay attention, so we can move through them and get our joy and pride back.
