"busy-ness is poison to creativity, and poison to spirituality, and poison to living a full life. i am one of the most prolific serious writers alive today, and part of the reason is that i spent so much of my twenties doing not much of anything, if you look at it from a production standpoint, but doing a lot, if you look at it from the perspective of trying to find out who i am and what i love. getting grounded. and that took a lot of time, a lot of time spent sitting by a river reading, or taking walks, or sometimes watching baseball."
