Sometimes my life has been Odyssean -- landing on strange islands of consciousness and reality and meeting very curious monsters who turn out to be very great teachers. Sometimes my life has been a quest for a grail of knowledge and education. Like Parsifal, my life has been a quest to pierce the veil, stumbling along but eventually finding it.
Sometimes my kids might tell me they had a dream or and maybe I'll paint some paintings from their dream. That's one good thing you get from your kids. Rob them of their dreams.
Sometimes my influences are really on my sleeve. So I just make sure to wear a lot of sleeves.
Sometimes my husband will surprise me with flowers for no reason. Unexpected romantic gestures are very important and keep things exciting.
Sometimes my husband has to literally pull me away from the computer.
Sometimes my heart hurts so much, I beat it with my fists. I try to run. But you cannot run from this. It waits for you. Even when you think you have escaped it, it is there.
Sometimes my favorite directors are the ones I literally want to punch in the nose.
Sometimes my fans are too nice.
Sometimes my fancy gets to floating inside me, threatening to carry me away like a leaf on a wind. Better to be a stone.
Sometimes my family got me in the door. Somebody would say, 'Bruce Dern's daughter -- sure I'd like to meet her.' It was a point of interest. But after five minutes of talking about my father, I still had to read for the part.
Sometimes my ethnicity is relevant, other times not. I definitely get the best of both worlds.
Sometimes my doubt seems intuitive, but most likely it derives from an implausibility or a logical problem I may at first find difficult to identify and articulate. It is interesting to me to work through questions that arise in this way.
Sometimes my dad even gets on this kick -- 'You hate this country'....I have to tell him...I just hate being lied to.
Sometimes my colleagues joke and call me Hannah.
Sometimes my brain is saying, 'Go wild on food,' and I'll want to pig out, but I'll tell myself, 'No.' You either want to win or you don't.
Sometimes my brain goes on CD shuffle. You know, you put a bunch of CD's on and hit play and random things come out.
Sometimes my boyfriend would write the lyrics and I would write the melody, and other times I would start from scratch. Or sometimes I would take a local poem and put that to music...I always sang standards because the songs I wrote for myself weren't as easy to sing.

Sometimes my body wakes me up and says 'Hey, you haven't had pain in a while. How about pain?' And sometimes I can't breathe, and that's hard to live with. But I still celebrate life and don't give up.
