Take it all back. Life is boring, except for flowers, sunshine, your perfect legs. A glass of cold water when you are really thirsty. The way bodies fit together. Fresh and young and sweet. Coffee in the morning. These are just moments. I struggle with the in-betweens. I just want to never stop loving like there is nothing else to do, because what else is there to do?

Title: Wear Sunscreen 933 plays


Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99 
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.

The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by 
scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience…

I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not 
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. 

But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and 
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before 
you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you 

Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as 
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing 

(The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.)

Do one thing everyday that scares you


Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with 
people who are reckless with yours.


Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes 
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with 

Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults;

(if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.)

Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.


Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your 
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they 
wanted to do with their lives

(some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.)

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t

maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t,

maybe you’ll divorce at 40,

maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary

what ever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much

or berate yourself either –

your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.

Enjoy your body, 

use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it,

or what other people think of it,

it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own..

Dance…(even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.)

Read the directions, (even if you don’t follow them.)

Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for 

Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the 
people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you 
should hold on.

Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard;

Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths,

prices will rise,

politicians will philander,

you too will get old

and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don’t expect anyone else to support you.

Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

(Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you’re 40, it will 
look 85.)

Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who 
supply it.

Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen…

Timeless. Classic. Relevant for right now. Relevant for always.

I remember my mother telling me that when she was a little girl in Catholic school, the nuns used to hit her left hand every time she wrote with it. Nowadays, if a teacher did that, she’d probably be arrested for child abuse. The optimist in me wants to believe sexuality will eventually become like handwriting: there’s no right way and wrong way to do it. We’re all just wired differently.

It’s also worth noting that when you meet someone, you never bother to ask if he’s right- or left-handed.

After all: Does it really matter to anyone other than the person holding the pen?
