"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
"It's something for a child to be introduced to the Meeting...this time when you are no longer in first day of school, but you actually come and join the Meeting. And my grandmother was trying to tell me what you did. So her explanation to me was you went inside to greet the light. And this idea, to go inside to find that light within, literally, as well as figuratively, was something that really propelled me at the time. I really thought that that's what I should do. Of course, I'm still trying to figure out exactly what she meant. But I like that quality."
