What would you be in a different life?
I couldn't write without music. It's extremely tied to my process. A couple years ago I tried teaching myself guitar because I got frustrated that I could love music so much without knowing an instrument... I'm still a novice but it's fun to just sit down once in a while and pluck the strings.
In another life I am a farmer. Which I've been trying to be in this life, though with far less success. I have a very large garden (orchard, berries, nut trees, greenhouse, many many beds of vegetables), and it produces some amazing things. But again I am unable to coax the corn and squash from the ground due to an erratic spring, and I know that farmer me would find a way to do better. He would know the soil's needs or have a better seed storage method. He would take more time sifting through compost and weeding. He would be better at this. Dirt would be his language.
In another life, I would’ve decided to be a writer as soon as I discovered writing.
I'd be an actor in the theatre with a big voice who loves to play the villain
Good question! Probably a musician. I’ve got a keyboard just sitting here in the nook. Just don’t have the time to pursue it further.
Music is my desert island art form.
