On Inside David Foster Wallace's Private Self-Help Library

One of the goals of many in AA (and the plethora of other 12-step fellowships) is to live life on life's terms.

It's so easy to romanticize people who aren't actually present. Those of us who are still around may be a little too solicitous to any cute young thing, get into weird spiritualities or have that permanent quizzical expression that is the result of a not-expensive-enough face lift. Like bluesuedeshoes, I'd much rather be criticized for normal human follies than dead.
