In case you’re thinking of doing a 4-day Barron River Canyon loop through 3 rivers and 7 lakes, with 17 portages (the latter of which amounted to a total of 4,800 meters), I’m here to tell you: take a shortcut. I feel accomplished—but did I have fun? (Yes, ok, I did.) Now to 💤.

Asked for writing advice, I've always said that most of writing is the ability to observe.

Words (including sign language) allow us a bridge to cross the fleshly prison we cannot breach otherwise.

Without compassion, how can you observe? What shoddy words will you produce?

Two men raw from grieving the loss of their mothers after having both lost their fathers and brothers when they were young offer lessons in humanity and honesty - something in short supply lately. Thank you @StephenAtHome and @andersoncooper. https://twitter.com/ac360/status/1162183695270387712

This is the kind of book you buy after reconnecting with your high school art teacher. (It’s wonderful, if a bit West-centric.) My weekend reading.
