From an interview with the amazing Jean Valentine in an old issue of The American Poetry Review:
I want to live in today and in this hour and in this moment. What have I waited for in my life? I guess I’ve lived too much anywhere but in the present. I’ve lived in the past and I’ve lived in the hope of the future, living with the thought of getting a book published, or being with the right man, or knowing that my children are happy. This happens or that happens and then I’ll really have myself, be at home.
I think at one time I was waiting for things from the outside that could only come from the inside. What am I waiting for now? [Laughing.] Living in the hope of not waiting for anything.
