The Life of Leonard Rosenman, Part Four

More thoughtful thoughts from composer Leonard Rosenman about life and music, including some self-deprecation:
How could I take [Marcus Welby, M.D.] lightly when I'm such a hypochondriac? I have developed symptoms, or thought I have, for everything that the doctor's patients ever had. It's a miracle I'm not a total wreck by now.
