“Beloved” by Toni Morrison. I think I read it first in college and have read it every few years since. The language itself is remarkable. I don’t know that I’ve read a book that explains America so well.

I started reading seriously after I was in college. I read comic books. I read every “Power Man” and “Iron Fist” that ever came out. I had a teacher introduce me to poetry, and that kid of woke me up .

Nature calms me . I could stand in my garden all day and never feel more relaxed .

There’s something about beautiful moments in sports that alters our experience of time. And I’d say the same thing about poetry and gardening. Gardening shows me down. I want to stop and observe everything

Part of the delight of my garden is that you just get lost in it before you’ve even started to do anything.

“The madness of spring is so enticing. I love it when things are open in up and emerging from the ground. I also love the middle of summer when fruit is bursting forth, but I even more love th garden in the winter when everything is resting .”
