A very special interview

Today we are going to have a very special interview…with Mr. Nathan himself! Even though Nathan cannot speak with words, he speaks with his eyes and body and actions and sounds and with his very soul.

As he is asleep right now we will just have to imagine he is sitting right here, and answering these questions in his own special ways. So on with the interview:
