Only the echoes


Alas, I've come too late to this study group. Apparently everyone has gone stampeding off to the next new thing, and I hear only the echoes of my footsteps in the now empty halls.

Liberating, in a way, I guess.

Years ago, when a strike shut down all the newspapers in New York City, the late, great sportswriter Red Smith was asked how he felt about the strike. "I hate it," he said. "How do I know what I think if I can't read what I write?"

To go even further off-topic, Red Smith authored another of my favorite quotes: "Writing is easy," he wrote. "You just stare at the typewriter until little beads of blood form on your forehead."

So, I'll just keep coming back to the study group occasionally to post away, so I can see what I think.
