I want to stop the bull and just be real for a moment, for a week, for the rest of my life. I feel like moments of clarity are far and few between. There is a hole so deep in this world that no amount of consumption can fill. We are all only ever human. Yes, I put my pants on one leg at a time just like you do. The pedestals we put people on in the design community are like the tide of the ocean. As sure as they rise, they will fall. Having expectations is not a bad thing, but don't be surprised if reality doesn't live up to them. Get over yourself. Treat others like you wish to be treated. Make time to step away from your work and spend time with your family. Money, like friends, will come and go. So be wise where you choose to invest. Okay, that's all I got.
