You will also allow me to thank the Academy for inviting me to lecture in Stockholm, for its hospitality, and for the opportunity afforded me for admiring the charm of your people and the beauty of your country.
Beauty is a radiance that originates from within and comes from inner security and strong character.
I played with the same band for years and years and there’s a beauty to having one solid core that you keep exploring. On the other hand, it’s nice to throw yourself in different situations where you find out things about your own resources.
My everyday job is about superficial beauty, but when I’m not working I prefer to work on my inner beauty – I read a lot, I try to learn.
