      Wow, this is great. I really appreciate the statement on friendship as a form of solitude. As someone who has always protected and cherished deep, intimate conversations and has had difficulty feeling authentic in group settings, I can say that the one-on-one forms of deep friendships and raw conversation are certainly seeds for learning how to think without all the extraneous noise confusing me about what I think vs. what the world thinks I should think.

        On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 27! Brilliant interpretation of current reality.

      This one's basically a miracle of an article, especially for me, and especially right now. It hits on so many things that I care so deeply about.

      Good chance this just changed the course of my life. That's why I read.

        Thanks for posting Bill. Compelling read. Like I just opened my window and let in a bracing shot of late November air. I feel invigorated, awakened, inspired! I see this was 2 years ago but it is absolutely timeless - like Truth!
