He has such a great philosophy on life. He told a story on the show of how he took a train trip, late at night, to a city (think it was Vienna) just because he had never been there. He got there before midnight - did a tour of the city and because it was one in the morning, he was a bit disappointed because the famous clock on the square only chimed once. He got the late night train back to the city where he was staying and was on time for an early morning meeting and filming the next day. I have also heard that he has joined fans at house parties and has even washed their dishes. I think he is awesome, wacky and wise (and he loves champagne (and vodka))
I loved this point in the article this morning the most:-
2. Be open to all possibilities.
Then tonight it would have been so easy to bolt the doors and shutters and warm up at the fire but an invitation to go with Gareth to a book launch, in a rather seedy part of town, was accepted. A special couple of hours with my son, sitting on hard seats, in a wonderfully cosy bookshop and the opportunity to listen to and meet the real Ben Trovato was a great way to end a very busy day.
Bill is right. Make yourself available.
