I trust that you are doing well.
Our name is the Kamikaze Shichishō Unit. Today half of the unit made crash dives against the enemy fleet in the decisive battle off Okinawa. Our sorties also will be decided in two or three days. Surprisingly, they may be on Buddha’s birthday. I am stretched out on the floor of a makeshift officers’ barracks in a school at Kanoya Base. Since there are no electric lights, we built a fire, and I am writing this with its light.

The original Michelin Man from 1898.
The Michelin Man is white because rubber tires are naturally white. It was not until 1912, that carbon chemicals were mixed into the white tires, which turned them black. The change was structural, not aesthetic. By adding carbon, tires became more durable.
The Michelin Man also has a name—Bibendum. It’s a weird name considering the latin phrase, “Nunc est bibendum,” which means, “Now is the time to drink.”
Regardless of where you live, how many resources you have access to, or which talents you possess, you have 24 hours in a day–just like everybody else. We lead busy lives and use our limited time as an excuse to procrastinate and avoid getting things done, but often claiming we don’t have time is a lie. It’s a lie we tell others and ourselves. It helps us believe we’ll never get anything done, and this is a problem. Fortunately, the solution might be as simple as changing your language

I was very, very hot.
Now I’m 61. I’m not hot. I’ve had two babies. I’ve been sleep deprived most of my life. My hair is a mess (possible Asperger’s symptom). I have never been married, legally. Funny, because I used to wonder how all those girls around me were ever going to find husbands, looking like that.
In high school, someone started a rumor I was on the cover of Seventeen. The freshman girls began to follow me around, giggling. They were so excited. This went on for months. I could see them admiring me from across the cafeteria, or down the hall. They’d stop, to worship. At last, one nervously came up to ask me about it. I told her: I was a model, but not in Seventeen.
