But you get up and get back on the horse.

Well, yeah. But, what's the risk? The risk is people think you're nuts. And we frequently think people are nuts. The real risk is that you wouldn't have found someone who had a warm and ongoing sense of humor and that is worth the risk.

I guess what I'm saying is that it doesn't take much to entertain me. You can put me down almost anywhere to sit for several hours and just watch people. And it's very hard not to be able to come up with fiction stories, based on what you're seeing or social questions about what's going on with the human environment and that's kind of how I make my living. "Look at that!" And you see what I see.

You give us new ways to see every-day things and that's a gift. Let's pause here, Robert. When we come back, you can tell us more about life on Crete and what it was like to be part of the band Rock Bottom Remainders with Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver and more of your fellow writers.
