Graeber saw us and came over to introduce himself: “Hi, I’m David. Can I sit with you?”

Mapping out a Path

David Hockney, Path Through Wheat Field, July 2005

I’m much more judgmental these days. Finishing a song is more satisfying now because I’m grateful, whereas when I was 28, I expected it. Now if I find something to say, and I say it in a way that I think is artful and true, I’m relieved I wasn’t frustrated or stymied. When I was younger, I just said whatever I had to say. I ask myself now: Do I deeply believe that? Will anybody get it? Am I just talking to myself? You have to put that aside because it’s not very helpful. […]
