Much as I hate typing on the damn blackberry I just had to tell you that the photo you took on the ferry is AWESOME!!!

In a magazine story about a long sailing race, I wrote, “there’s really something marvelous about sitting on a sailboat all night, trying for once in your hectic modern life not to make long stories short, but rather to draw short stories out, adding context and depth and detail and color in order to pass the time. Which is the principal reason human beings started telling stories in the first place.”

In one paragraph, the case against Twitter.

Great writing, as always.

Thanks, E.
