Erik: How are your family relationships changing as you get older?
Conrad: I’m becoming more aware of what my family members have gone through in the past. With my parents getting older, they’re both senior citizens, my dad’s in his 80’s. It’s something where I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about their lives and their lifetimes, and I’m really proud of what they’ve done. Even though I had nothing to do with it, but I’m proud of it. And I find it inspiring, but what’s most interesting is also in the past few years, I’ve had nieces and nephews come into my life, and it’s truly—it’s the cliché of the full spectrum, of the full circle of life, but I now see from the other side things I was wondering about or felt when I was a very small kid. When I was a kid, it was very much like the world is so big, but also it was me against the world in the sense of like when you’re discovering new things every day, I was a little protective of myself which is fine, you know? Now watching little kids grow up, like I do now with my nieces and nephews, it’s interesting to see—to compare them to myself and my sister, my sibling, when we were growing up and I think they’re way more open and loud than I ever was. I was very introspective. It’s opening up my whole world view via family view I guess. It’s great to see my parents hang out with my nephews back home, and it’s wonderful to see my mother and father-in-laws here in Brooklyn hanging out with our little nieces—their granddaughters. It’s fulfilling. It’s a fulfilling thing. It’s a great foundation. I only ever think about how it directly affects me or my thinking when I’m asked this by say you. But, but thinking about it, it’s a very—it’s one of those subconscious foundations.
