I think I’ve been drafted.

“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.”

Surprise and Delight: Serendipity and Digital Life -
Serendipity is a lovely word and a lovelier concept. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have nearly enough serendipity in my life, possibly (but not definitely) because I spend so much of my life online. So this post on serendipity by Eric Reiss got my brain all fired up and going in a million…
My friends are so much better at articulating what I think that I’m just going to reblog people when I agree with them.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS. My 43rd birthday, May 5, 2018, will be a reenactment of Hunter S. Thompson’s seminal work, “The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent And Depraved”, plus a motorcycle trip down the backroads of southern Indiana, culminating in the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby. I hope you’ll join me.

What I’ve learned from this is that I need to market almost exclusively to people whose names start with the letter “J”.
