These three readings, different as they are, all have to do with the ways we try to understand other people, the glimpses we try to get of their inner worlds. Of course, that’s what reading is, right, getting to see inside strangers. But maybe that’s what life is about, too. Trying, at least.

Have I mentioned that I am in this? I am in this.

One coworker spearheaded a tumblr called “Things That Make Juliet Happy,” which collected and reblogged things that she liked. It was mostly cute animal photos, music videos, an uncomfortable amount of Will Ferrell clips, and other inside jokes. It was a collaborative effort, one that was really quite incredible. Juliet loved it.

Maybe it’s just lazy—maybe cowardly—to blame the internet when we fail to express ourselves well. I’m not sure, but is this tumblr not the perfect expression of empathy? It is sincere and yet acknowledges Juliet’s situation in such a practical way. Think about Juliet idling in the waiting room during one of her many visits to the doctor, looking at her phone, distracting herself with the funny and thoughtful things her friends have spent time putting together for her. The tumblr was creative and caring. It showed imagination and effort. It said, “I’m so so sorry” without actually saying sorry. It said, “I can’t even begin to comprehend what you’re going through—I can’t even fathom it—but I know it must be hard and I am trying my best to make you feel better and I am here for you I am always always here for you.”
