Marcus Aurelius on Death


From “Marcus Aurelius on Embracing Mortality and the Key to Living with Presence” by Maria Popova. She inspired me to get Meditations on my Kindle.

I’m feeling pretty shitty today. It’s rainy and cold. I have work to do, but I have no motivation to do any of it. Autumn got tickets for Lyle Lovett tonight, so maybe he’ll be good. Since I associate my favorite album of his—Joshua Judges Ruth—with David, I’m not sure how I’ll feel.

Happy 97th to Norman Mailer, born on this day in 1923. I wish he were around to see the shitstorm this country is in presently. Consider joining the Norman Mailer Society to support his legacy and to join us in Long Branch in October.
