The above quote has been an essential guidepost in my life, but I seem to forget it for long stretches. When I recall the simplicity of that sentence, it leads me out of some pretty gripping self-pity. So, I thought I’d share my favorite book: Being Peace, just in case anyone else wanted a little mindfulness reminder. Learn more about Thich Nhat Hahn here.
and here’s the paper-related part: If you click here, “you will see clearly that there is a cloud floating in this paper” – page 51. A most eloquent description of the components of a sheet of paper, and therefore, the universe. Read it and then answer that infuriating grad school question “what is information?”. I dare you.
