(excerpt from his 2003 article)
 “…and this is where I step out from behind the cover of journalistic third-person and admit that I’m utterly caught up here. I was one of those boys jamming on his tennis racket, and I mostly listened to Neil Diamond—that’s how primal this dream is. Right now, Raven is acting out for me. Those are my fingers on the fretwork, my face scrunched in concentration. Like Raven’s, mine wasn’t primarily a dream about impressing people. It was really about virtuosity. A fantasy about being in the hot vortex of a moment when you’re bringing everything you’ve got—.. and your skills are up to the task, and you are, simply, great.”
