Thank you for this. I love your closing remarks.

I wish I was going to the LA Conference, if only to say hello to you! I enjoyed seeing your speech so much at TAM, and hope to hear you speak again soon.

Thanks so much Heidi -- what a lovely note to get.

Ditto Heidi. A wise wonderful post. I too love Szymborska and wish I could understand Polish so I could read her in her own language. Would she be as wry, I wonder. Thanks.

"Then tomorrow, I'm off to take part in a big conference of heretics in LA." If only all wise philosophers were as funny as you, Jennifer. The lives of first-year college students the world over would be vastly improved. Every time I remember your blog I read it and learn AND laugh. That's kind of amazing. Thanks for posting.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
