this-is-water-speech

This video excerpt from a speech, delivered by David Foster Wallace at Kenyon College in 2005, encapsulates exactly what I hope that I’m teaching my children every day of their lives.  Learn to think; to be aware. You do not have to operate on the default setting.  The rat-race is bullshit, yo.

Look deeper. Awareness is hidden in plain sight.

This is water.
