Some of my work is predominantly about loneliness. We write about what we know. I was born alone, have lived alone, and assume that even when we die, we die, probably, alone. Grim, to some, maybe. To me, this is simply fact, and it lacks any particular charge – it is as potentially helpful, as it is hindering, as beliefs go.
The other viewpoint that guides my work is that principally, we are all good beings, and that we are all simply capable of great things.
So, my creative goal is the make sure that neither viewpoint overshadows the other.
