Happy birthday, li.st (public version)
A list for all of you, with special thanks to the @list team.
- •Dear li.st,
- •I can't believe it's been a whole year since I first met you! October 2015 does not seem that long ago, but apparently this is what happens to time as you get older.
- •I've learned so much from you this year, from smallish things to really significant ones. I've learned things about myself, too. Listing it all would take forever; I'll spare you the 99 items. Suffice it to say, you've affected the way I think and altered the lens through which I view the world, both for the better.
- •I know we say it all the time, but one of the best parts of knowing you is feeling less alone (and less weird). It's a gift, really. I'm honored and delighted to know you. I'm sorry I'm still a bit shy when you're so forthcoming and honest. I appreciate your vulnerability, as well as your sense of humor, empathy, and kindness.
- •There will likely be more eloquent and lovely anniversary lists than this one today. I look forward to reading them all.
- •DG ❤️
