Music was your real passion, this thing you held dear even above family. It was this relationship that never betrayed you. Once it became your job - this thing that was highly visible, this thing that became about commerce - that's when you were holding onto music like it was a palm tree in a hurricane.
Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.
Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.
Robert Louis Stevenson

We were an ill-matched pair, my husband and I, from the very outset; he, with very high ideas of a husband's authority and a wife's submission, holding strongly to the 'master-in-my-own-house theory,' thinking much of the details of home arrangements, precise, methodical, easily angered and with difficulty appeased.

When people visit me at autograph conventions and signings, they always say, 'You just don't know how you scared me!' These people are grown up.
