I’ve noticed recently that most of the people I look up to are dead or will be soon, whether they were family members or historic figures.
I have a difficult time now trying to find someone new who is living to look up to.
So the short list, off the top of my head:
A grad school prof.
Richard M. Nixon
Au Sung Su Chi (but that may just be a lust thing)
These are the people and books I turn to when I need some help deciphering the turtle bones of my life.
You would think that with 6 billion people on the earth it would be easy to find new ones.
