The twists, turns and curves turn into trusted truth--naked and without judgment (for I am constantly judging my thoughts and actions, as I'm sure that most educated persons are.) For some reason, the act brings out the best in me, even if I must wrest it from the depths.
So, this brings me to you. I've been wanting to send you letters for years; really from the time of your birth. I had wanted to have a record of your life and some of my observations about the world as a backdrop. Time slipped away and now you are both men.

This is a film by The Glossary called "This Is Water" which is taken from David Foster Wallace's commencement address at Kenyon College. The film is less than ten minutes. It's profoundness is in it's simple message. We hope that you enjoy it.
THD Quotes (To Bolster Your Hooray)
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life:
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
-- Oscar Wilde
You gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.
-- William W. Purkey
Be who you are and say what you feel
because those who mind don't matter,
and those who matter don't mind.
-- Bernard M. Baruch
