“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” ― Steve Jobs

“Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.” –Carl Sagan

OMG. Do I LOVE John Mellencamp’s oil paintings? Yes I do.
Mellencamp also sang some songs on Stern’s show, and his voice is so raw and beautiful.
Thanks for the great interview, Howard!
John, your art is so inspiring! Thank you!
