A: I honestly feel like I have spent my whole life looking for her. I feel like I spent my whole life stumbling about, knowing that there was this girl out there for me. I always believed in The One and I was tired of writing about it, but not ever experiencing it.
A: I think it definitely helped, in that we were both looking for a place of purity that wasn't based in either of our careers. And we found that in one another. For us as people and as artists, it was important to have that refuge,if you like, that secret garden that you know is not tainted in any way. I don't love Nic because of what she does and she doesn't love me for what I do. I just love her, pure and simple.
A: Definitely because even though we got together in our mid-30s, we shared an entire history before we had even met. We could cite everything from songs from our childhood, to things that you do at Christmas, to lollies and chocolates that are peculiarly Australian, to TV shows — everything.
A: Everything. Just everything — it's indescribable. When you meet that person, as I did with Nic, there's this chemistry and synergy and sympatico. She's my spiritual other half. We ask ourselves if we would like to have met each other in our 20s, so we could have had more time together, but the trade-off may have been that we wouldn't have had the same amount of life experience to bring together and really make something of substance.
A: I don't know. We love having two daughters right now. I think we are open to letting things evolve naturally. We don't have any definitive plans either way.
A: There are no definitive thoughts of not doing it or doing it. Nic and I have always been the kind of people who operate from a place of responding to the rising of feelings — that's just creative people in general."
A: (laughing) No, there are not.
