This Is Water

What is it about David Foster Wallace? He's so capable of cutting through all the bullshit we get worked up over and of taking seriously the inane, cliche, and totally obvious things that actually matter to us on a daily basis. He gave a commencement address at Kenyon College in 2005 called This Is Water, which you can read here. I think much of what he's talking about is really valuable to bear in mind when thinking about Beauty.
