who she admires

I’ve always been a bit soft on scientists and men who can work miracles with their brains. And, oh yeah, my grandmother. She’s sixty-eight and she goes camping and paints and just lives life large. I want to be like her. I’m in a situation now that I’ll probably never be in again, I can go into a studio and I don’t have to worry about the bill. I bought myself a computer the other day that I can draw pictures on to siut the music. I don’t have to fight so hard for things now but I might again. And, when I do I pray that I’ll be as self-sufficient as my grandmother.
