I just read the interview of Lee McCarty in the April issue of Garden & Gun magazine (quite possibly my all time favorite magazine). And I might just have gotten some of the best advice of my life. He summed it up perfectly.
"Can I leave you with a piece of advice?" he asks (the interviewer).
"Love your wife," he says, a wisp of sadness in his voice (his wife, Pup, passed away 2 years ago). "Spoil your children. And then, if you're lucky enough after that to have them, as I have been, spoil your grandchildren after that. And all the while make your art in a place that you love."
Another day, another story,
