You know, I write from the aspect of complete life. In life we go through moments where we’re in very serious moments one minute and then we’re in very dramatic moments the next. I know that this works because I’m on stage with 30,000 people every week and I do it every week. We go into one serious moment and then we’re laughing the next, and it helps to talk about these kinds of subjects.
