An Interview with Seth Crawford by Chris Patchell

[Chris] What is your idea of perfect happiness?

[Seth] Letting go of the past and finding peace in the simple things, like family.

[Chris] What is your greatest fear?

[Seth] Disappointing the people I love. Not being there when they need me.

[Chris] What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?

[Seth] My ability to disconnect from how other people feel in the pursuit of justice.

[Chris] What is the trait you most deplore in others?

[Seth] Dishonesty. I prefer people say what they mean, even when those things can be hurtful.

[Chris] Which living person do you most admire?

[Seth] Though I’m not much for politics, I admire James Comey for telling the truth and upholding the law despite the enormous pressure placed on him by those with greater political clout.

[Chris] What is your greatest extravagance?

[Seth] Hope. Hope can crush you.

[Chris] What is your current state of mind?

[Seth] My happiness is tempered by an undercurrent of anxiety, like at any minute the good things in my life could evaporate and I’ll be left alone.

[Chris] What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

[Seth] Faith. I believe in personal responsibility and doing what’s right for yourself.

[Chris] On what occasion do you lie?

[Seth] I’m not the type of guy who lies and do so only when the stakes are high and there are no other options.

[Chris] What do you most dislike about your appearance?

[Seth] The burn scars on my face are a punishment that couldn’t begin to atone for the sin of neglect.
