Amazing Brain

Comments (7)

There are many things I love about my wife Amy, but I especially like her brain.  Over the holidays, she came up with the idea for having a year of living alphabetically.  As a writer, she spends a lot of time with words and – besides have one of the most amazing vocabularies I’ve ever encountered (I don’t every have to use the lookup feature on the kindle – I just should “Amy, what does “ossiferous” mean?) – she’s really good at not misusing dashes or having run-on sentences.

B is for Being.  The first part of this week is being brought to you by the letter B and Amy explores Buddha’s last words.  If Buddha was Yoda, he would have said “Best you do, there is not less or more” before he died.

    Brad,

    That is a really cool idea and it's also touching to see your very public joy about your relationship. Congratulations to both of you and enjoy your week.

    Thanks Rahul. Amy and I are in separate places this week so I’m thinking of her an extra big amount.
