maybe writing and producing

The last time me and Polly Harvey met we were joking that we would be fucking 80 years old and still trying to talk each other out of stage-diving because our bones are getting too old for it ! But I might not be on stage because I get a very big kick out of working with other people and I can easily picture me writing songs for others or producing others - I mean hopefully, and not being big-headed, but I would love to do that. It’s like a tangent or a dream. Or writing musicals. I would also love to teach. But it will always be music, I think, because it wasn’t like I picked music, it was music taht picked me. Sometimes it’s quite weird because I try to get away from it, but no matter how far I try to go, I always somehow get back to it. It’s an obsession.
