"The last thing one discovers in composing a work is what to put first." T.S. Eliot

I must confess that, having wrestled with language for the new website a good part of today, I must agree with T.S. Eliot.

Writing is one of my greatest joys because I always learn more from it. Over-writing, then coming to find the essence, is a completely satisfactory discipline, and includes arguing with myself as I go.

I believe it's Thoreau who said "the best way out is always through."

One of my favorite sayings and a mantra I live with on a daily basis.
