We can learn much about the foundations on which our houses of cards are constantly scattered.

On writing (short)

Posted in observations, random by rumin8r on September 1, 2009

The most interesting thing about writing is getting such a clear glimpse of yourself. I would coonsider it, in many cases, a glimpse of my former self.

Thoughts on a page should be carefully arranged. One can take the time to deliberate over what would be the most appropriate word for the microcosm of a single spot in a sentence.

What I read later is a fascinating view of all of the forces I might have weighed in my choice of words. Better yet, I can see all of the ways in which I hoped my words might signal and be received in the best light by those I might hope most to impress. Fascinating.

I hope it is clear that my audience is well above the common denominator – my intended audience, that is.

Who am i kidding?

I created this, as I alluded to earlier, as a diversion, but I would really like to make it work. I have no idea what the primary focus should be. I also do not know how to gain an audience. Even one who might just read for the first time.

I also feel profoundly tired. That might be because I am blogging in bed. Oh, the wonders of mobile devices.

I wanted a good forum for my ersatz intellectual writing.

What have I got for today? Call it a poem? Or an aphorism?

A plan kept is like a page unturned in the book of what could have been.
