And does all the wisdom about living that fills your books also fill your life?
Yeah. I know what matters. And it’s easy because only a few things matter. Joan, certainly. My sons are great successes and are connected to us and are reasonably happy. We have a nice dog, my car’s running. I must be famous because there’s a guy here interviewing me. What else could I ask for? And I get a lot of money for doing work that I rather enjoy. Not enough, but a lot.

    I guess you know by now, that Robert Parker died this past week. We will all miss him.

    “We all know less about this craft than we say we do.” What a realist. It’s that kind of brutal honesty that compells you to read on. There’s no fluff and puff or wasted rhetoric. He goes to the heart, states his case, and leaves you wondering what hit you. I love it. Regretably I’ll miss it. Won’t we all. God bless Parker and Spencer, wherever they intersect.Regrets to Joan and the boys. There’s always a void.
