“Don’t take yourself so seriously.”
What inspires you or who do you admire?
What inspires me? You know the first thought I had was my granddaughter, but [as in she] brings me joy. Brings me incredible joy, much more than I ever imagined it would to see and watch this little beautiful thing come into her own. But that’s a lot different than inspires...
You know who inspires me? [my friend] Don inspires me, because he’s so content. One of the things that’s really amazing to me in my life is that I have many many moments now where I don’t wish for anything or to be anyone else or to be anywhere else and I didn’t know that that feeling existed. That there was no desire to be something else or somewhere else or someone else.
It’s very nice. I think it’s about as nice as it gets.
