I was always interested in writing and reading, but I had many chores to do. I did a lot of work around the house and around the farm. I remember cutting the lawn — not with a power mower, but with a hand mower — when I was fairly young. So, it wasn’t that I was a free spirit. I was not a free spirit. I fit in with the household in the way that people do in farm communities. Everybody’s working, basically. But I think I had my own private imagination as we all do. And I just found a way to have a private space in my own imagination somehow.
