"Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old."

"The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea."

— Anne Morrow Lindbergh

date by numbers

My badass best friend went on 2 dates in 8 hours on Friday, and it proved to be a highly insightful exercise. My interpretation of her narrative here.

Male 1: Impossibly handsome and preppy. Lived in Newport for a time. Law degree. Boring, but did I mention his eyes?

Male 2: Corky, entrepreneurial spirit. Fun. Dedicated. Leader. Interests include, professional bowlers and Bernie Kosar.

Male 1 conversation: Gossip about mutual friends and acquaintances, money, power, etc etc etc.

Male 2 conversation: Hilarious banter, playfulness. Insight into his business, the challenges of maintaining customer loyalty and personalization while gaining popularity, including the superficial demands and uncomfortable political implications. Personal hobbies. Travel. Spontaneity.

Guess who she has already given the pleasure of a 2nd date? Sexy eyes is crying into his $30 martini.

"It took being famous to make me cool, which, by the way, I never forgot."

"I’ve had years of psychiatry, and I ask about every six months - it’s sort of like getting your oil checked - I ask, ‘I’m not an actual narcissist, am I?’ The learned men of psychiatry assure me that I meet none of the medical criteria."
