This is Water – David Foster Wallace – Commencement Speech
I like the work of David Foster Wallace a lot.
It’s so “American” for me.
I like its brutal honesty and how it carries the feeling of our time.
Every year I have my students listen to his speech, share it with friends and listen or read it myself from time to time.
He reminds me how not to loose perspective and the importance of the seemingly small choices we make in life.
