What makes you feel alive?
"Aside from the blood that is pumping through my veins? My wife and I like to talk about birds. We don't do this as much as before we had a child, but when we were expecting our first child we were living in Louisiana and we were by a really nice swampy area. That's kind of an oxymoron, isn't it? We would go and watch herons in their breeding and nesting grounds. There were basically raising their own eggs and babies and it was really strange because there was a certain sense of feeling totally a part of nature in the sense that we were also 'nesting.' There was something really profound and 'alive' feeling about that."
