    1. Blair’s posts are a remarkable feat of digital storytelling. She spun the all-in-all rather trivial behavior of two strangers into the social media equivalent of a rom-com and initially the story was heralded as the summer feel-good story we were in desperate in need of. (There also was some speculation that this was all a hoax, which is possible but seems implausible at this point.) But soon questions emerged about the ethics of this modern-day fairy tale, especially when it became clear that the female subject of the story did not welcome the attention and had her social profiles deleted after internet sleuths had figured out her identity. On July 12, she put out a statement through her lawyer in which she claimed to have been “doxxed, shamed, insulted and harassed” and that voyeurs had come looking for her. By that point, the couple responsible for the tweets was slammed online as well.

    1. Perhaps the most underused of all of their muscles is the imagination, as we seek desperately to find a recipe for something that already exists.

      YES!!!!

    2. Are we creating a generation of people who cannot find the beauty in the mundane?

      This is an incredible statement! There is beauty all around us and many times we fail to see it because we are so busy scheduling and running our children around to their "next" class, game and activity.
