Reality is a concept. We are all the centres of our own universes; the trouble comes when someone else wants to be the centre of yours without consulting you.

    I’m reminded of my sister’s first violin. When she got a decent teacher, he looked it over and told her, “Well if you can play that well on this thing, you’re pretty good!”

    Someone else’s, usually. They run up and whack you with their yardstick, and then tell you that you didn’t measure up.

    Now I’m stuck with Belafonte’s “Zombie Jamboree.”

    It’s hard to be friendly when you feel as dried-out as that.

    Autumn is definitely a relief! Where I live we get over 40ºC for a couple of months. If I were a millionaire the first thing I’d do would be to move somewhere cooler…like maybe Finland.

    The Japanese would disagree with you. They scrub off the dirt before getting in the bath for a long, relaxing soak. And they were doing that over a thousand years ago, while most Westerners were just going dirty.

    Being a professional musician is like being an actor or a writer; in proportion to those who can actually live well from it, the majority have to work two jobs. At least.

    When you get older, the idea of taking a nice hot bath and going to bed early (in my case, with a good book) is always the crowning glory of a day off.

    A few years ago we redid the bathroom and replaced the tub with a shower stall. While it has practical reasons, I still feel it was a mistake. Intellectually, I know it was a good decision, but I miss the tub!!
