This is Tom Waits talking about (amongst other things) Keith Richards:
"You know, in the old days they said that the sound of the guitar could cure gout and epilepsy, sciatica and migranes. I think that nowadays there seems to be a deficit of wonder. And Keith seems to still wonder about this stuff. He will stop and hold his guitar up and just stare at it for a while. Just be rather mystified by it. Like all the great things in the world, women and religion and the sky ... you wonder about it, and you don't stop wondering about it."
"A deficit of wonder"? I like that - and I think it may be true. I aim to up my "wonder" quotient!
