The movie business is very difficult but the music business is just impossible. So I'll play in bands and record and play songs with other people but for me it's a form of expression that all I need is me. I don't need cameras or agents I can just have a piano and sing and feel totally verified.
In my business if I get too close to you and you die it hurts me. And so you develop a natural inclination not to be close to the patient so that if things don't work out ideally you can still get up the next day and care for the next patient.
Some people want fame popularity and huge sales. I've always hoped to have a really long career. So I've tried to make each of my creative decisions and business decisions to allow for longevity. As a side effect I got really famous and really big. I didn't realize the two could go together.
I've drunk Amazon's free Diet Coke. Nothing makes more sense to me than a company trying to make bookselling into a profitable business. I'm not anti-Amazon and I'm not pro-publishers either. I'm pro-books.
The thing that helped me get into the film business was that I went to school in Athens Georgia and managed to get on um working on music videos for a band called R.E.M. and that kind of opened up a lot of doors for me.
Well there's nobody who has a more supportive husband than I do and he has a business that he runs and it's his own business so he has work to do my kids have school to do I mean people have - there are other things in life besides politics.
