Q: Do you find yourself more religious as you get older?

A: My faith has always been there. It’s just not organized. Like there’s no doctrine, no book that I follow. There’s no story that I follow. To me, the forest is my church. It’s a cathedral to me. If I need to think, I’ll go for a walk in the trees, I’ll go for a walk on the prairie or I’ll go for a walk on the beach. Wherever the environment is most extreme is where I will go, and I will go no matter what. If there’s a moon, I’ll try to get out and walk under the moon. So it’s a natural thing with me. That’s just the way it is.

–Neil Young, SOMA magazine, 2006
