I don’t have time for a long post today, but I think I’ll spend this week looking at lessons that can be drawn from “Humans of New York” posts. I’ll have more to say about the site soon, but for now I’ll just start with this one, which is one of my favorites:

sticks-in-the-mud, and then the two sticks saw each other across a
crowded room. (Fun fact: I used to write songs in college, and one had
the chorus “I don’t care and you don’t care so let’s not care together”)
