RIP The Broccoli Tree

Oscar Wilde once wrote that “Each man kills the thing he loves”. I don’t know exactly what Wilde meant by that, but our collective attention and obsession, amplified by the speed and intensity of the internet & social media, tends to ruin the things we love: authors, musicians, restaurants, actors, beloved movies, vacation spots, artists, democracies, and even a tree that became too famous to live.

This kind of indie web work will never be mainstream. And, really, at this point, to work on a project like this — at this level of detail, for yourself — is a form of meditation (lest it become torture). And, I admit it — I like trying to get the margins and fonts right.

“Looking through a wider lens, I am starting to find a subtle change happening in myself. Despite my best efforts, I am starting to see my life in context of life led by others. It is not how I think and who I am, and perhaps a little time off the networks will give me better perspective.”

Thomas Jefferson #1

In matters of style swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.
