We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves,” the universe “peoples.” Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.

From bus-induced whiplash, to puddle surfing along 8th Ave, to speaking to the entire Tumblr staff, to eating lunch with my publisher, to getting slightly drunk on pumpkin beer in a tiny NYC bar, to using my peejar on the floor of the bathroom in said bar, to my book signing event at Books of Wonder, to falling asleep with friends on the bus ride home, yesterday was nothing short of incredible.
Shane Burcaw is evidence that being human and vulnerable is a part of being a really cool and developed human being. I’m glad that he’s seeing so much success! :)
