"Delay is natural to a writer. He is like a surfer—he bides his time. Waits for the perfect wave on which to ride in. He waits for the surge (of emotion? of strength? of courage?) that will carry him along." (E.B. White, The Paris Review Interviews, 1969)
Hope Y'all Had a Great Independence Day
Two young, smart, VERY independent women. Intestinal fortitude I haven't seen in many adults twice their age. Happy Independence Day, folks.
