      Food for thought. Also nice idea recommending a piece of content regularly; that’s mention #2 of Invisibilia for me.

      My dude Ricky's newsletter really crushes. He has a great gift for writing. He just opens up his head and lets you in.

        As a fellow Asian man, Ricky's words speak volumes to me. Thanks for sharing this, Bill.

      A very honest piece of writing. I also feel very sad and anxious about the pandemic situation in Taiwan right now..

      The sign is like a sharp reminder right up in my face that I’m different.

      I feel similarly... admittedly, there are so many different stimuli every day that remind me that I am “different”— a sign simply puts the obvious in words.
