    I am Scottish! Born and raised in Scotland for the first 44 years of my life, I have retained a certain mentality and approach to life that is not shared by many people who were born and raised in America.

    Inspiration is fickle and not a tap you can turn on when desired. When it does flow, go with it and leave nothing out that passes through your mind.

  • God made man, Man made religion!
