Patton Oswalt: Annihilation

I cannot speak highly enough of comedian Patton Oswalt's recent Netflix special "Annihilation", in which he discusses the grief from the loss of his wife.

The words from his late wife continue to echo in my head: "There's no higher plan. The world is chaos. Be kind. Be kind. Be kind." I find myself thinking about it over and over in many contexts. "Be kind" is the simplest diagnosis of so many problems, and I find myself lately just bringing everything back to that simple thing.

Here's an interview with him and Steven Colbert from a year ago, if you're interested:

    Reminds one of HHDL's oft quoted mantra:

    Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

    In the OP clip...I can appreciate the way they talk about experiencing grief and not letting it take hold. Only way out of through it.

    I watched the Netflix special. ???? ??
