“Life is a whole”

(I usually post this speech every other year or so).

Yesterday on Twitter someone was trying to separate my writing in books from my writing here at the blog. I told him that I don’t categorize my work that way. And then I was reminded of Richard Rodriguez‘s 2008 commencement address at Kenyon College, one of the best commencement addresses I have ever heard.

Life is a whole.

Rodriguez’s book Hunger of Memory is one best books I have ever read.
