It’s important to distinguish between getting up and waking up – there may be a considerable time between the two. I don’t have any morning rituals.
I listen to all kinds of music. Music is like a big ocean. If I started fishing, there would be no end to it. I like receiving music and I listen to it because of the people I was given it by. The most recent was “The Knife”, which my son gave me.
Whatever I’m reading at present, although sometimes I don’t like or feel any connection to what I’m reading. Lately I’ve also been reading critical essays in English.
When I was young I absolutely adored Italy, but I haven’t been there for nearly 30 years. If I hit the jackpot, I would go to South America, Alaska or Siberia. I love travelling, but living abroad is also a great challenge.
Both. I like cooking. Although when men start cooking, it tends to have no end.
I like reading analyses – in The Times, Newsweek, Der Spiegel and Le Nouvel Observateur.

Yes, whatever I’m working on right now. I don’t like looking back. It’s best to look forward.
There are many such people, but what holds me back is whether they would also want to.
The women I’ve had contact with. And also men. And children.
I could give lots of advice. It’s a sign of aging, some kind of compulsion to go around offering advice.
I do, but I have this idea in my head that I’ll finish them someday.
