I like feeling my way into different minds and experiences. It comes naturally and always has.
Both for my wife and myself, the personal friendships that have grown out of scientific contacts with colleagues from many different countries have been an important part of our lives, and the travels we have made together in connection with the world-wide scientific co-operation have given us rich treasures of experiences.
I write about my feelings, things that happen in my life and experiences.
I had experiences or exposure to music in church. I went to a church, it was very unique. It was a predominantly African American Catholic church. So they would have - one mass would be traditional church music, and then the other mass would be gospel music.
The National's favorite experiences as musicians are when we are collaborating with people a little outside of our world as a band.
I don't even draw on my life experiences when I'm acting. I just try and make it feel like I'm living through that person's skin.
I'm free to see things objectively because I don't consider myself American, and I don't consider myself British or Indian. I'm kind of an amalgam or mongrel of a lot of different places and experiences. In a lot of ways it's been a good thing for me. It's enabled me to do what I do on 'The Daily Show.'
To be honest, I enjoy all different types of films and experiences.
It's my theory that one of the big reasons clinics have shut down - and will continue to shut down - is that former abortion workers have spoken out about their experiences in public and worked to testify against their former employers.
Life experiences inherently change you as a writer. My sense of fury calmed down when I had children and found a loving partner.
