Loss of William Zinsser

With regret I read yesterday of the passing of William Zinsser.

I benefited from his books
On Writing Well and Writing to Learn as learner and teacher. I still keep my copy of
On Writing Well on my desk, and refer to it.


Anyone who needs to learn how to write needs to read his works.


Writing About Your Life was one of the inspirations for this blog and helped get  me through what was in general a difficult summer.

Product Designers :(

Would it actually be possible for product designers to design products that would be actually be easy to use or even usable for ordinary people? I'm looking at you, bandage designers and nutrition beverage packaging designers! And a lot of other product designers!!!!!!!!!!!

Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Word software is . . . evil. Seriously. It is so "my way or the highway" and so difficult to use that it's downright evil. I know that's odd to say and reactionary, but still . . . .
Some people say the 'net is evil. I say it's what you do with it--use it for good stuff or bad stuff.
But Word software . . . ugh! To have used it for years and just find out that you have to hit "accept"  to keep changes when "save" won't do it, and "hit save" is what you were told, and only what you were told!!!!!

Atmosphere Lived In

Don't trust anybody. Because you can't trust anybody.
Everybody is going to jerk you over.
You can't do anything right.
You never ask enough questions.

He and I Are Like Ideology

He and I are like ideology:  he and I have no history.
Don't mention this or that or what or who we watched or thought or talked.
What was mass or substance did not mean what I thought it did, squared or not
(That itself not what anyone anywhere thought, as he has proven, tho' I only know but seek to forget).


My broken heart and I have ret-conned him out of my life


Now I must change my profile pic:  now it is inappropriate.

Thinner more so look
Surprising less than inner change
Tear spring empty
Sere-rendered source
Betrayer's carve in my heart

Insult



So . . . the governor goes on trips to get businesses to come to the state. What's wrong with investing in businesses begun by people born here? Are we not talented? He's from here too. Is it some sort of self-hatred? People born here don't have any talents to contribute? His attitude is insulting.
