…and this is one of my favourite photos of my favourite thinker.
Photo of a young Ayn Rand, taken in 1931 by her husband-to-be Frank O’Connor, on top of her apartment
building in Hollywood; the water towers in the background mark the studios of RKO and
Paramount, where she worked as a clerk in the wardrobe department.
you do something not done on any other holiday: you give *yourself* a present… Randsday is for reminding ourselves that pleasure is an actual need, a psychological requirement for a human consciousness…
Randsday is the time to challenge any duty-premise, re-affirm your love of your values, and honour the principle that joy in living is an end in itself.
Have a selfish Randsday!
