Question: What inspires you?
Moby: So my dear friend Jody Shields gave me one of the greatest gifts. She gave me the gift of words. She is a wordsmith and has written beautiful things and at a very difficult time in my life where I had a lot of loss, losing both my parents she sent me this beautiful beautiful poem by Derrick Walcart and I read it all the time and it goes the time will come when with elation you will greet yourself arriving at your own door in your own mirror and each will smile at the other’s welcome and say sit here, eat and will love again the stranger who was yourself. Give bread, give back your heart to itself to the stranger who has loved you. All your life whom you have ignored for another who knows you by heart take down the love letters from the book shelf, peel your own image from the mirror, sit and feast on your life.
I think I was raised and taught to please and to serve. I am in a service business and not appreciate oneself enough and may be if you can free yourself of those shackles and enjoy who you have the potential of being in who you are that you get that out of the way and you can move on and so I think of that a lot.
