From Borges, those wonderful gaucho stories from which I learned that you can be specific as to a time and place and culture and still have the work resonate with the universal themes of love, honor, duty, betrayal, etc. From Amiri Baraka, I learned that all art is political, although I don't write political plays.

Pants Belly

I wish I could view the belly that oozes over the top of my pants as a badge of maternal honor. I do try.

Some have stood the test better than others.

Values Morals

I want the kids who watch 'One Tree Hill' to know that it's all pretend, and that the person at the core of that character values morals, honor and things like that. You want to inspire them to look beyond what is superficial and try to find that greater thing.

- Hilarie Burton

Myself Activity

Thought Some

If you are going to be serving a living thing, you have to honor that living thing with some kind of care and thought and preparation to rationalize the taking of that life in some way. Where if you're just grinding up hamburger at McDonald's, I see that as a bit of an affront to living things.

Green Going

It's an honor to see that green jacket in the bedroom closet, but I'm not going to become somebody else because I won the Masters.
