Preface



    adoxography : beautiful writing on a subject of little or no importance.

    Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted.
    ~ Sylvia Plath


    Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
    ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


    If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
    ~ E.B. White

Epilogue

  • A Normal Day in the Unusual Life of Michael Keaton by Tom Chiarella
    Samuel L. Jackson, Keaton's costar in three movies, including the upcoming remake of RoboCop, calls me and speaks excitedly about the versions of Keaton. He sounds exactly like Samuel L. Jackson:

    "The man is always something new. Batman and Beetlejuice are very different from one another. That's a passage from darkness to light. Beetlejuice is dark, man. That's some dark shit. And it's funny. But Michael brought gravitas to it, and then to Batman, which was a lot different from what I had in mind. And so on. There's hilarity and menace in the guy. "He's just a very cool dude.
  • A Manifesto for Understanding in a Time of Great Thirst, Emma Fisher, Charleston
    Because it’s too heartbreaking. To love a place and a people so much. To love a place so much that you never feel at ease unless you’re able to rest your eyes on that terrain. To love a place so much and to feel so absolutely powerless to protect that place and to uplift the people who live in it and, perhaps most importantly, to protect and uplift yourself in it. To know that the problems are too great, too pervasive, steeped in too much time.
  • Elemental | Cultural Slagheap
    But something about this confluence, the way I had to bring potable water to my family from two hours north, the strange look of the landscape wreathed in rain and mist, the stench of a chemical that was housed directly upstream from the water company—something about all of that made me absolutely buoyant in my rage. This was not the rational anger one encounters in response to a specific wrong, nor even the righteous anger that comes from an articulate reaction to years of systematic mistreatment. This was blind animal rage, and it filled my body to the limits of my skin.
