Really. I love him. Love. Him. And aspire to Milton Glaserness because you know what? He’s a man who knows how to be a human in the big world, who knows what matters and how to make goodness, for himself and for others. And he’s a man, very old now, who, while having seen and done a great deal, retains the desire and the talent for astonishment. We should all be such wise celebratory optimists. The world would certainly spin smoother on its axis if we were. And you should watch the video below and read his immensely moving and inspiring essay “Ten Things I Have Learned”. I read and reread that suckah frequently, whenever the black dogs of self-doubt are nipping at my heels. Because for me, his words ring long and deep and true and sometimes I need to be reminded of why I’ve chosen the precarious professional life I’ve chosen.
Milton Glaser. He can nearly always cure what ails me.
