i knew david foster wallace

i knew him when he’d come for dinner after playing tennis and i knew him when he sobbed when his dog died and i knew him when we went out for dinner at an italian restaurant and i knew him when he’d put his cigarettes in his socks and wear jogging head bands i knew him when i went to his memorial service and put a candle by the fountain for him and i really knew him when i read his commencement speech at kenyon college. any person breathing should read it.

next up is photos by ryan mcginley: i’d like to be there:what would you title this photograph?maybe “illumination” or “this is it” or “wood, snow, and youth”. enough of ryan mcginley…now for some good old ‘i wanna be in love’ pictures:
