Internally, I’m fascinated by where I am. I use the analogy of Swiss cheese; I think I have fewer holes now. I think men are the weaker of the genders and live a more limited life than women. For whatever reasons, men run from intimacy, you’re running from what life can give you. So I feel less than Swiss cheese — the holes being the days you didn’t live as fully as you could.”
