The meekness of my ambition
January 4, 2003 |
Dear Mr. Keillor,
What do you consider to be the essence of the uniqueness of your talent? Is it your perspective on the ordinary? Or the keenness of your pain? Or the deepness of your insecurities?
Pete, the essence of the uniqueness of my talent is the meekness of my ambition. I’m the least stage-struck person who ever spent this long doing a show on stage. It never was my dream. My dream was to play hockey and that didn’t work out.
