My father really was not the dominant person who raised the family, it was my mother who raised the family.
I can't say that I'm always writing in my head but I do spend a lot of time in my head writing or coming up with ideas. And what I do usually is write the music and melody and then, you know, maybe the basic idea. But when I feel that I don't have a song or just say, God, please give me another song. And I just am quiet and it happens.
If you don't ask, you don't get.
Minds ripen at very different ages.
