I know several couples who experienced adultery in their marriages, but because in each case there was a wife who was willing to pray and a husband open to allowing God to change and restore him, the marriages are still intact and successful today. Only prayer, a submitted heart, and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit can work those kinds of miracles.
When you have to face up to the fact that marriage to the man you love is really over, that’s very tough, sheer agony. In that kind of harrowing situation, I always go away and cut myself off from the world. Also, I sober up immediately when there is genuine bad news in my life; I never face it with alcohol in my brain. I just rented a house in Palm Springs and sat there and just suffered for a couple of weeks. I suffered there until I was strong enough to face it.
The State exists simply to promote and to protect the ordinary happiness of human beings in this life. A husband and wife chatting over a fire, a couple of friends having a game of darts in a pub, a man reading a book in his own room or digging in his own garden-that is what the State is there for. And unless they are helping to increase and prolong and protect such moments, all the laws, parliaments, armies, courts, police, economics, etc., are simply a waste of time.
The summer gig turned into my day job. I was an arts administrator who helped make indie flicks. At the filmmakers’ encouragement, I tried shooting a couple of shorts of my own. Directing was stressful, it was not my strength. But writing the scripts and helping others with their scripts – that was a gas. Making stuff up the way I wanted to see it was the biggest kick I ever experienced.
Metal buildings are the dream that Modern Architects had at the beginning of this century. It has finally come true, but they themselves don’t realize it. That’s because it doesn’t take an Architect to build a metal building. You just order them out of a catalog – comes with a bunch of guys who put it together in a couple of days, maybe a week. And there you go – you’re all set to go into business – just slap a sign out front.
I never did well meeting strangers, so my favorite part of partying as a couple was that I didn’t need to strike up conversation from scratch. If you’ve ever had to go out and meet new people on your own, you would understand. It can be a bit of an awkward situation. If you’re already out at a party with someone you know, it takes that pressure off.
I do a certain amount of work in religious communities on these issues. It’s not the central focus of my work but it is certainly an area where I have worked a lot. It has gotten much better over the years, especially over the last couple years. There wasn’t a religious environmental movement 15 years ago, but there is now – in the Catholic community, the Jewish community, the mainline Protestant community, and in the Evangelical community.
Frequently, I go straight into the studio and see what’s around. I might hire a couple of instruments that I’ve never used – maybe a particular type of electronic organ or an echo unit. Then I just dabble with sounds until something starts to happen that suggests a texture. The texture suggests some kind of mood, and the mood suggests some kind of lyric. That’s like working in reverse, often quite the other way around, from sound to song. Although often they stop before they get to the song stage.
