Mindfulness is a quality that’s always there. It’s an illusion that there’s a meditation and post-meditation period, which I always find amusing, because you’re either mindful or you’re not.

The idea that you’re completing someone else in a marriage to me is death. That to me is a false start and most of us are usually taught that … you’ve got to stand on your own. Then you can build something extraordinary.
I have no sense of time, and I’m a dreamer.
