I find that moving keeps me optimistic, the idea of what's going to be down the road a bit or around the next bend.
On good days, I can see the inherent goodness in people, and that human beings have a high capacity to learn and adapt. But things like the environment, nuclear weapons and ideas like peak oil - if you think about them too much, they can really freak you out.
I would prefer to be a little nervous, because when you stop being nervous is kind of when you stop caring.
I've given up trying to understand what people think about me. It seems like a lot of people don't like the music we make and don't know me, or something.
