INSPIRATION FROM WILDLIFE
What I miss from being homeless is sleeping outside among the trees and the wildlife, and having the warmth of the sun greet you in the morning as you wake up. There is nothing like it. I witnessed a lot of great things, from a snow owl swooping down on me, thinking I might be its next meal and leaving disappointed that I was not a rat, to a skunk sneaking into my tent while I slept and snacking on my cream cheese, I have a lot of nature stories to tell. What I am fascinated with these whales is the bubble-net feeding. The circular pattern is something that captives me.
I love this Simon and Garfunkel song. Music is often inspiring to me. The score to Alfred Hitchcock‘s film North by Northwest helped me write what was supposed to be a short story for a college writing class. It ended up on the path to being a novel. The composer, Bernard Herrmann, was a pioneering genius with quirky, eccentric musical tastes, much like the fantastic Ennio Morricone. That novel is one of my unfinished projects, which I should resurrect and complete. Wish me luck.
