— Henry David Thoreau
Okay, since I haven’t read much lately (blame friends, Apple, and Hulu), I’m going for this old quote from HD Thoreau. While I haven’t connected much with the fellow in the past, this quote struck me as golden. I find that the longer I wait to write on a topic that strikes me as intriguing, the less interesting and complete my my thoughts on the subject turn out to be. If I could pinpoint one major downturn in my writing life (besides the apathy I fight so strongly against), it would be this: I wait until I cool.
