Old School Writer

posting_stuff…Yeah. Somehow sending proposals and samples of manuscripts around by email does not really feel super-exciting to me. But it is the way things are done now, it seems. But this afternoon, I found myself doing something very old-school, which I rather enjoyed, perhaps because it connected me with writers through the ages: Printing up some special packages (proposal, samples, etc, of the book project), putting them into envelopes and schlepping them down to the post office, getting in line, and actually posting the things off to publishers! It was only three, and these are Hail Marys at best, but the exercise felt good …and who knows?

Ok. Now for some physics. Somehow, during all the errand-running yesterday, I had a splendid idea for a calculation (while on the subway) that I’m dying to try out.

    All that took me back and, as far as I can tell from Wikipedia, I’m old enough to be your Dad. Who knows what tomorrow might bring?

    Indeed… But wait! Wikipedia? Don’t automatically believe what you read there…
