I'm finally accepting that 'putting pen to paper' is now 'putting fingers to the keyboard'. While no form of conversation will ever beat face to face, and the smell of a fresh book still excites me, I'm warming up to the fact that this is an online world. I'll post writing, photos, reviews, rants, and anything else that comes to mind. Most importantly, I'll come to terms with being an old fashioned writer in a new world, a world where 500 characters is all you get to say it all.

Ralph Waldo Emerson also says...
'We are as much informed of a writer's genius by what he selects as by what he originates.'
- Ralph Waldo Emerson (from 'Quotation and Originality', Letters and Social Aims, Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1876)
