Surprise Us With Grace

This morning I read You Are Not A Server: Nor Are You Finalizable by Alan Jacobs, in the Hedgehog Review.

The article invited me to:

  • Challenge the simile, “my brain is like a computer” and question its (the simile’s) usefulness.
  • Expand my options and consider the third response.
  • Imagine alternative relationships with social media.
  • Read Dickens, especially David Copperfield (my Grandpa loved it).
  • Be more than anyone could expect.
  • Surprise with grace.
