September 22, 2019. I spoke with Phillip Collins at the Uxbridge Farmer's Market. Phil is one of the founders of Foggy River Farm and was selling tea and talking to people about his products. He was keen to answer my questions and did offer to take his glasses off, but I thought they looked very cool so we kept them on. You can see him without them on his website standing with his co-founder, his lovely wife! I seem to have hit a motherlode of excellent humans here!
Are you in love?
"Yes. I believe that love is an emotion, so I feel love the most often for my wife, but I feel love for a lot of people other than her, but most often my wife–and my daughter, actually. Yeah.”
Who has been the most influential person in your life?
"Same: Wife. Parents. Daughter. They all take turns influencing me to be better.”
How do you feel about the future?
“Um, optimistic most times, and deeply pessimistic at times as well. Um, but I do as much as I can to push myself into the helpful place. It’s a scary world.”
