Yes, solitude’s very important to me. I may have had that naturally, maybe I got it after my early catastrophes and my father not coming back and being scared of being a mother’s boy cause I was always with my mother and wanting to be alone even when I was with her. But I did get used to my own company and it’s the key to my existence. This place where we’re filming now is my office. I come here to work because nobody can get at me. And I can do the thing, the secret thing that all writers do, the thing that’s never spoken about, I do nothing. Because a writer must be able to get up in the morning on a writing day and do nothing. Wait. Wait for it to happen. If it doesn’t happen until five o’clock, it might happen tomorrow. But you have to have a place to go where you can do nothing and not be interrupted by someone saying, well he’s doing nothing, maybe he should carry this heavy object upstairs or dig this garden. You’ve got to be able to get away. And luckily I enjoy it very much, but I have this other side where I like to be in the limelight too. I like to go on stage in front of a thousand people and entertain them. And maybe that’s a form of solitude, I’m told that it is.
