I like to listen to music while I work out for many reasons, but mostly it's the only time I really have to myself to concentrate on listening to music for a big block of time and I enjoy listening to music and learning about new music, so I consider listening to music while working out multi-tasking. I'm getting my exercise, taking care of my body and mind, and getting some music recreation/education in at the same time.

pardon me from jumping in here, but dovetailing on what C wrote above, do you write your poetry to music? we know you create much of your visual art to music, do you think a particular piece would develop differently if you were listening to something else?

Excellent question. The answer is no. I never write poetry to music. Music would interfere with my construction of rythmn and sound. I always read what I write out loud as part of the editing process because how the poetry sounds is just as important as how it reads on the pages. If I listened to music then what I write wouldn't be coming just from myself. I just recently started listening to music quietly while writing my memoirs but mostly for the atmosphere. Sometimes I have to turn it off. I always listen to music while making art.
