Try to learn to let what is unfair teach you. — David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest
I did my hair today for the first time since Grandpa was in the hospital. So, there’s that.
I’m feeling a little foggy today. Everything is clouded.

What a tremendous woman, and a tremendous loss. Lauren Bacall was an incredible namesake, and I’ve looked up to her all my life.
This week is starting to get to me. Everything feels so heavy. As a dear friend once said to me, “Life has not been gentle lately.”
Do not ever tell someone how they should mourn.
I feel like people are only really dead once you stop learning about them. This is why it is important to me to keep learning about my mother, and what she wanted, and what her life meant, what she meant by the life she led. Then she will be alive, somehow, and her wish for me will have come true. My vow is to learn more about her. To see her as she saw herself. — Liz Moore, Heft
