Andy Kessler RIP

I didn't know anything about Andy Kessler before his death this week. He suffered a fatal allergic reaction an insect sting at age 48.

I wish I could embed this lovely video of him skating and talking about skating. I recommend following the link to remember what the simple pleasures are all about. (video at the bottom of linked page)

Bret Anthony Johnson wrote these poetic words in the NYTimes:
Think not of swimming in a pool, but of becoming the ocean itself. Think not of flying, but of floating in a place where the ground or gravity has never existed — a place
where, at long last, there is no irony, no pain or struggle, where there’s no such thing as falling.
