'ESTOILE NAIANT' by Patten
Susan Sontag’s biographer, Benjamin Moser, on looking through the writer’s archives: http://nyr.kr/MARju2
“Reading papers and manuscripts is one thing. Looking through someone’s e-mail is quite another … To read someone’s e-mail is to see her thinking and talking in real time. If most e-mails are not interesting (“The car will pick you up at 7:30 if that’s ok xxx”), others reveal unexpected qualities that are delightful to discover. (Who would have suspected, for example, that Sontag sent e-mails with the subject heading “Whassup?”)”

OMG SHE IS SMILING.
If you read one thing today, make it Alan Watts on your ego, the universe, and becoming who you really are.
