I was thinking today about the characters I write about it (when not writing songs from direct personal experience). Many of these characters are exaggerated, larger-than-life, extreme. Some I have met; others are fictional. Yet even with the fictional characters of my songs — at some point they enter my arena and are there, real people, before me. They manifest themselves from the page into the living world.

Songwriting is a lifelong friend that inspires me creatively while kicking my ass at the same time.
