The Neighborhood

I love this article, titled "The Struggles of the Global Placeless." My favorite line refers to people who "find that their connections can run worldwide but only an inch deep. They may find it easier to ask friends in five countries for a favor than to ask a neighbor for sugar." Somehow I understand these friendships that are spread across the world best.

The Company You Keep

Most things seem to revolve around the company that one keeps. I could be living anywhere or working anywhere and be tremendously content if I have good company.

I have three phobias which, could I mute them, would make my life as slick as a sonnet, but as dull as ditch water: I hate to go to bed, I hate to get up, and I hate to be alone.”
