He was born a second-class citizen in South Africa; he died one of the world’s most respected men.
It’s incredible what changes a single person can make in all of humanity’s timeline. Among many perceptive thoughts, a favorite:
"There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered."
Although this is a very obvious snake-in-can-of-nuts prank, my manager Darnell is still tickled. But in slow motion, it’s a thing of beauty.

I don’t even know what I’m saying

This is EXACTLY what Nikki Minaj sounds like to me.
“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.”

I like this in theory, but after an evening spent listening to old love songs where the actions of the singer would probably land them a restraining order, I’m not sure we can be the passionate, raw people that Ryan O’Connell says we should be in his piece on the subject.
Sure, I’m all for screwing the “game,” and I tend to do that in practice, but Going After The Things You Want is a one-time shot. Even then, pulling a Love Actually and showing up at a door with notecards or boarding a plane to fly to someone on the other side of the country is too risky, and quite intimidating for the one being “loved.”
I’m not a gambler. But if I’ve been close to being in love, it was one-sided, so who am I to say what is right or wrong.
Cozy when she wants to be.
