Description: Who would have thought that such concise and uncomplicated advice as"wear sunscreen" would attract worldwide attention' That's what happened when Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich penned her fictitiouscommencement address in 1997. Her words, now appearing in book and song, have resonated with those who cherish her poignant, witty approach to life. Perhaps it's the direct simplicity of her style. Or maybe it's how herwords illuminate life's little truths. Then again, it could be Mary Schmich's humility: "Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is away of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting overthe ugly parts, and recycling it for more than it's worth."Soon after the Chicago Tribune columnist penned these words in June1997, they rocketed around the world via E-mail. Somehow, though, theywere credited to author Kurt Vonnegut who, it was said, had given thespeech to a group of Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduates.Eventually, the hoax was discovered and Mary Schmich received proper credit. Since then, her words of wisdom have been turned into a best-selling book with more than 150,000 copies in print. The words were put to music by Australian movie director Baz Luhrmann, and the song became a hit on radio stations around the world.Now, we offer a beautifully coordinated spiral-bound journal to accompany these insightful and irreverent declarations. The sunscreen "speech" flows throughout the journal to spark ideas and reflections. Wear Sunscreen: A Journal for Real Life is a thoughtful gift for anyone.
