The oddest anomaly: an intimate letter to a stranger Ask the baby owls!

The oddest anomaly:
an intimate letter to a stranger
Ask the baby owls!

Pico Iyer said:

“The less conscious one is of being ‘a writer,’ the better the writing.

And though reading is the best school of writing, school is the worst place for reading.

Writing should

… be as spontaneous and urgent as a letter to a lover,

or a message to a friend who has just lost a parent …

and writing is, in the end, that

oddest of anomalies: an intimate letter to a stranger.
