We all stand like angels, every one of us, wings folded against uncertain futures, a string of decisions defining our wake. We stand like angels as we live, individual, unique. I want from you, you want from me, motivations building opportunities for happiness every day.
Someone shouted at me from a car earlier today, calling me a hateful bitch when I responded to his catcalls with, “You’re being rude.” But you know what? I try to live well. I recycle, I use my purchasing dollar to support fair business, I pirate media but introduce it to people I know will buy it. I send TED talks out to everyone possible. I fight for science, literacy, and higher quality education. I encourage small, easy changes, like only using cold water for laundry, as well as the more difficult ones, like refusing to back down when people ask “what’s the harm in holistic medicine?”. I believe in equal rights, supporting charity, and changing the current paradigm with better information architecture. Plus, last time I heard, I’m phenomenal with the kissing. Guy in the car? You’re an ass. Go suck rotten lemons.
