Choosing our people.

I want to live next to humans,

Very realistic people who know

How to laugh at their mistakes,

Who are not inflated by their own triumphs,

& who take responsibility for their actions.

In this way, human dignity is defended

And we live in truth and honesty.

~ Mario de Andrade

Sharing this lovely quote today, which I found on this blog (where you can also read the whole poem, which I recommend).

I am currently hiring and it is an odd type of intimacy to choose who I want to spend a tremendous amount of time with.
