“In boxing you are dealing with the fight for perfection, in boxing you deal with the fight of the fittest. Funny as it may seem, this is crazy, but my trainers used to say to me ‘boxing is like having sex’ and I never could understand what they meant by that. What I found out is that you have to put everything you have inside boxing and what comes out of it is the craziest thing, as far as using the body mechanics of love making.
Building, yes that is a fight too. To feel the way that Noah felt when he built the ark, bringing all the wood up here from the dumpster, doing stuff I had never done before, and then actually witnessing myself doing it. My biggest fear is becoming homeless and that great motivation turned into the mansion.
It is crazy, just to have my stuff outside was, oh my god, so embarrassing. I had so much stuff I had to cover it up. I needed a garage, boom, a tool room, boom, and now that we were settled down and living in a community, we needed a church. When you settle in and look out into the view you think, this place deserves a mansion. It is almost like the lifestyles of the rich and famous. When you are homeless you are almost like dead but at the Bulb, in our mansion, I could actually feel myself breathing a little bit.”
