I think that as with marriage you just know when it’s time to have kids.
Both my husband and I give a lot of ourselves in what we do because that is our public lives but in my private life I have an intrinsic right to be left alone.
I have a responsibility to nurture and shepherd my talent and when I’m living the parts of my life not related to that I feel I have the right to be left alone.
When I was working on Eye of the Beholder I played a character who is so aloof that my whole lifestyle became very aloof. If someone knocked on my door there was a part of me that went into a rage because I wanted to be isolated and alone.
Well the fact is that one imagination is critically important and if you have had your imagination stimulated by what is basically a variety of subjects you are much more amenable to accepting to understanding and interacting with the realities of the world.
It’s funny though because when I first started going to races after we met I was extremely nervous. It’s like being backstage and hoping you don’t trip over something or break an amp or accidentally speak into a live microphone so I was really hesitant.
And of course there’s so much music in and around our family. I had a piano during Christmas because it’s obviously useful through the season. There are so many people songwriters who are around.
