"To be able to empty your head - I love that. That's why I like fishing. When I'm standing out there up to my nipples in the Gulf of Mexico and I have some fish bait, there's always the possibility of the unexpected. And while I'm waiting for the unexpected - that fish that rarely comes by, a rogue fish that went crazy and left the school - the 'noncatching' of the fish becomes the focus. It opens my head up and thoughts can 'unpurposefully' swim through my brain."

“In Brazil, we were driving through the mountains of Belo Horizonte,… everyone felt crushed. When we got to Rio, you stand on the beach, why does one feel exhilarated?… It’s not that I’m bigger than that ocean. It’s that somehow I’m in that space. I’m really involved in space. It’s true space. Whereas in the other, I’m involved in relation to something else in space.”
- Barnett Newman
