ALL HANDS / News & reflections, Sep. 29, 2020

Share with your friends. Articles now have “share” buttons, making it easier for you to post them on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and WordPress). There are also buttons for emailing or printing. These all come after the article (until I can figure out how to move them). Please share.

Another “My Great Teacher” item. Maria Alvarado, of Riverside, California, is the first reader to answer the call for stories about teachers who got us fired up about art, music, or other creative pursuits. She was transformed by not one but two piano teachers. I hope Maria will inspire you to tell your own story.

A spell of Nietzsche. Maria’s submission gave me one of those rare opportunities to correctly render the surname of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. If you are missing a consonant, he’s probably got it.

“We have art in order not to die of the truth.”
