What would people be surprised to know about you?
I’m naturally a massive introvert…I seem social and jolly…but I used to hide in wardrobes as a kid when new visitors came to our house because I was so scared of other humans. I’m still a solitary creature. Like a lone wolf in a party outfit!
What’s your greatest struggle right now?
Being my own bad boss. I have time, resources, finance, yet I’m wasting my jobless and motherless freedom to create lots, but I stare and coast along too much because I can, and because there’s no kids to pick up at 3! The music eventually gets written, but I could have churned out more than I have, and that gets me down…I need a strict boss!
Is there a quote/mantra/saying you keep coming back to?
- comparison steals joy
- where you stumble, there lies your treasure (Joseph Campbell)
- To send light into the darkness of mans’ hearts, such is the duty of the artist.
