• Read­ing Ev­ery­one is dis­tracted all of the time (27 Oc­to­ber) I ex­pe­ri­enced an emo­tion I had felt be­fore. About a year ago a young friend of mine at univer­sity told me that a mu­tual friend of ours (also at univer­sity) had passed her driv­ing test and re­ceived 83 Face­book “likes”. On the same day an­other young per­son in the same group had fin­ished chemo­ther­apy. She re­ceived 11 “likes” and one hand­writ­ten post­card. I was over­whelmed with sad­ness, both then and now.
