A truly fascinating and remarkable article, IMR; one that I wasn’t aware of and that I’m very happy to have had brought to my attention by you.

It really does take a certain kind of person to be able to live in solitude for so long with nothing but your thoughts and experiences churning inside of you, sometimes digging into and confronting things that bare your soul to yourself.

As a young child, I was always quite happy – luckily for my mother – to spend large periods of time by myself creating imaginary worlds in which to play. In that regard, I don’t suppose I’ve changed a great deal.

Thank you for sharing Mr. Ventura’s unique angle on an aspect of being a writer that is little if ever examined.

(By the way, I was also in LA in 1993. I wasn’t there during the riots the previous year, but I was there for the earthquake the following one. Crazy times.)
