Personal Quote:

[on the passage of time and his sons leaving home] I miss them. It's grief. You have to decide: is this going to bury me? Am I continually going to think, 'Well, that's another light that's gone out?' Or am I gonna kind of settle into this and enjoy myself? It's a decision you can make. I don't want to sound like some sort of fuckin' life coach, but you can open your head to new experiences. See more »
