In praise of short chapters?
In praise of all short writing.
Because blathering on and on is easy.
Short impactful sentences are hard.
And like I have said before – a certain chapter or a certain blog post does not have to be the end-all-be-all treatise on what I think about a given issue.
The hilarious part is that
this passage below is the entirety of chapter 26.

Does one complain to Rimbaud because of the brevity of his verse? In fact I am old and there are very many subjects about which I have something to say—just not much.
