Remembering David Foster Wallace

Yesterday was the anniversary of Dave's death. In remembrance of him, I'd like to link to his Kenyon College commencement address. It is a piece that meant a lot to me. It has stayed with me and even helps me to be less of a bitch while in line at the grocery store.

Rest in peace, Dave. You are loved.

They did part of this on the NPR tribute to him yesterday. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it yet.

Yes, I think of it too when I have horn honkers behind me or mothers smacking their kids in the grocery cart. Patience and tolerance...

I heard this on NPR and still have been thinking about it so finding your blog today was a nice reminder.
