The Sun and the See (Say Yes)

Everything is so full of wonder that it is completely ridiculous not to attach ourselves to (at least!) the corner of the thing that is happening right this very moment. It’s insane not to acknowledge the sun and the moon and the sand. For a second, anyway. For six seconds? Seven… 

And sometimes we have to make time to chase it down. To look up at the sky and find the moon, to focus on the horizon line, not at the sun, but as close as we can get without burning our eyeballs… to keep a promise even when logistically it doesn’t make a lot of sense. 

Sometimes you just have to exist without dreaming because this is the dream, too. This moment is part of the dream.

Why you should delete SnapChat:

Any time your device connects to the internet it associates 100% of your activity with your device. (Every device has a unique identifier, like a finger print. When you buy it and register it that transaction is linked to you and everything you do with it is ultimately pointing back to you.)

Every site, every image you upload/download, every search, every call… everything is associated with that device. E.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. Even if you delete it. Even if you use a proxy server. Even if… E.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.

Dear Bill Keller: I Have Cancer. Is That OK?

Several people I told about the blog asked if I was sure I wanted to be so “public” about my battle with cancer, whatever that means. Lymphoma is not, for the record, caused by intravenous drug use nor is it caused by bigotry, nor racism, nor any other thing that a rational human being would be embarrassed to admit to having done.
