    Cool story bro
    "The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all. It was a saying about noble figures in old Irish poems—he would give his hawk to any man that asked for it, yet he loved his hawk better than men nowadays love their bride of tomorrow. He would mourn a dog with more grief than men nowadays mourn their fathers.

    And that's how we measure out our real respect for people—by the degree of feeling they can register, the voltage of life they can carry and tolerate—and enjoy.

    As a 20 year musician, music is the other great love of my life, (don't tell that to my wife or son) so it's weird to me that I need complete silence when writing. Listening to music just completely throws me off as I find myself concentrating on the tunes rather than what I'm putting down on paper. Love it in many shapes and sizes at any other time, but when it's time to get my thousand words for the day, it's just a pesky noisy distraction!
