Early Morning Barton Springs Swim Report 5/30
So many of my favorite parts of a story appear between ( ). There’s something that happens within them for the writer that can’t be reached, just so, outside them. They’re rarely merely throwaway asides, I think. To me, they’re essential: “(A thought I had while composing the above: I wish there were an ampersand for or. For any number of words. If written English went a little rebusward, I’d be happy.)”
This line (among others) rings clear:
if you spend a lot of time imagining a person’s reaction to a present it’s probably a sign that the present is mostly about you, anyhow.
And for rebus-like text, try Swedish. Everything can be a snappy an acronym, TXT (till exempel, for example).
OMG next time I’m there! Love this story.
Ah yes, presents to self, disguised as gifts to others. Love this! And all the early morning swims.
I feel like my comments are always “I love this,” but I really love this!
A present for yourself—this one is perfect.
Love this one!
I'm not getting any newsletters and just thought everyone had stopped writing them. Now I have to go back and read all I've missed from you.xk
