Three or four days before his death


“Three or four days before his death, it seemed to me that killing himself was probably the farthest thing from his mind. I mean, he was a kind of dramatic sort, so I can imagine that maybe he got swept up in some kind of drama in his mind and it got the better of him. He talked about suicide a lot. But he had told me ‘I still have some more work to do, I’m gonna hang around.’ I always felt like it was probably part of his neuroses and part of what fueled his inspiration was toying with the idea of leaving the planet.”
