He used to drink with us every day. He always had One Hundred Years under his arm. Alejandro and Álvaro used to say, “Here comes that moocher to talk about literature.” He was always with us at Japi, but he drank very little. He used to hear our stories and then write them down later. I haven’t read One Hundred Years since it was published, but I’ve read it a million times—because every day he used to read the chapter he’d written the night before. If he’d slept with the two-bit whore, he’d write a chapter about it.

Transfering iPhone photos to a hard drive because I’ve maxed out my limit and found this old message for david from Curitiba. I <3 Brazil.

When I worked at Tumblr in the early days, we used to take meetings by walking around the block, getting coffee or tea. As the company grew bigger, meetings meant being in conference rooms.  
Now at my tiny startup, I find that taking active meetings helps Alaric and I whenever we have hard problems to solve.  We invented this game that we&#8217;re both terrible at: soccer tennis.  On certain Fridays, we take our co-founder meetings by kicking a soccer ball back and forth over a tennis net.  It helps our brains get creative when our bodies are more active.  Plus, it&#8217;s a lot of fun and works a lot of my core.
There are no real rules except that you have to use your feet and you have to not let the soccer ball stop moving. 
We keep having to tell the tennis players that &#8216;yes, we are playing a real game&#8217;. Meetings - necessary - but they can be fun!
