One thing I really got from the series is that living up to the standards of your previous work and living up to the standards you set for yourself about how your do the work you do are two different things. You can't predict public reactions; all you can do is approach the work at a high level according to the standards you have for doing that. I think that's been Paul's philosophy and it certainly resonates with me!

Politics and justice, live and recorded music, reading/writing, art/creativity, teaching/learning, living abroad, and self-actualization for all.
