Chris Messina on Defense Against Fear

"Sharing and giving away all that you can are the best defenses against fear, obsolescence, growing old, and wrinkles. It isn’t always easy, but it’s how we outlive the shackles of biology and transcend the physicality of gravity."

"If we are Generation Open, then we are the optimistic generation."

I fall somewhere between the generation of parents that Chris mentions and "Generation Open." When I read his work, I wonder what we all have to learn. (And what we've honestly learned, thus far.) I fear that I skew closer to the parents. It makes me wonder what I'm missing.

He seems unfalteringly optimistic about this new, open world.

Optimism, if you haven't noticed, is in short supply these days.

Perhaps I should go back for seconds.
