I work out on a veranda

I work out on a veranda–they call it a “lanai” out there–with my back to the ocean and to what’s going on. What’s going on is usually a startling bikini walking past. I couldn’t write about anything but the Goddess if I were looking in the other direction. So mine is a nice sort of forest to retire to.

-- Joseph Campbell
