But how do I know when a piece is completed? That’s hard to say because I so often fuck up a piece that is ringing with harmony and I’m just a little too dull to hear it…It’s like you’re running towards the edge of a cliff and sometimes you manage to stop just in the nick of time and sometimes you run straight off. Sometimes you get scared and you stop far too early, and it works.

It is difficult to write about a place if I haven’t experienced it personally. The preacher in the market in Santiago, Guatemala; the ferry crossing the river to China Beach in Danang; the smell of a 20-horse two-stroke outboard in the Lake of the Woods; the size and shape of the pillows in a hotel in Phuket Thailand—these small details informed each of my stories.
