Track Name: Foreword
FOREWORD

A summer weekday morning in 2013, I posted (as a Facebook status update) a list of five recent firsthand insights and titled it Things I've Come to Realize in the Past Few Days. There was never any plan to make this an ongoing public exercise, but I felt compelled to come out of the closet, understanding that as everyone's navigating the zigzags of existence, checking in with each other, on how all that's shaping up, can be helpful.

More than a year later, the lists continue, their sole guidelines being that (1) they happen on Sundays, but only if the preceding week's goings-on patched through a wake-up call; (2) they're composed on the spot; and (3) I'm honest. These shares are personally freeing, unstudied, and predominantly met with rousing choruses of affirmation, which I'm inclined to believe have very little to do with me and very much to do with us—ever-interested in substantiating that we're not alone. Once in a while, they lead to respectfully robust give-and-takes about how best to be among the living. (I like that sort of thing. It can't hurt, in the long run.)

I've finally decided to oblige requests to assemble selected entries into book form. I fought this for some time, because I'm principally hesitant to be perceived as anything other than someone with more questions than answers, but it's dawned on me that what readers glean from TICTR isn't for me to hypothesize or parse. I trust that its strong following is proof enough of its usefulness, and I'm elated to be part of a larger, soul-stirring conversation. (I have a friend who's a rabbi and, on occasion, when I've approached him with a niggling existential query, his hugely liberating and eminently humble comeback has been in the spirit of: "Who knows? Good on ya for asking, though." So... yeah. That. And amen.)

This is the first volume of handpicked notes with several fresh afterthoughts presented, by turns, as essays, stories, confessions. I hope you find at least as much value in reading it as I found rescue in writing it.

"Ocean waves are made of ocean. They're long bodies of ocean, curling into arched form and breaking onto shores, but they're ocean notwithstanding. Unique expressions of ocean."
