I want there to be a way for the travelling through the internet to be sort of tracked. Not tracked tracked, the way it is of course. Sometimes reading one thing, you follow a link somewhere else, then you see a word that you don't know, you open another tab to look up the word. Before I know it I have 5 or 6 tabs open. I think that's kind of interesting since it took time, and it's gotten you somewhere. Maybe there's nothing to that, it's interesting though. One day, I was reading the Pitchfork review of the reissue of Paul McCartney's Ram and there was the the line
"It's just the critics who say, 'Well, John was the biting tongue; Paul's the sentimental one,'" Linda observed shrewdly in a dual Playboy interview from 1984. "John was biting, but he was also sentimental. Paul was sentimental, but he could be very biting. They were more similar than they were different."
That led me over to the Playboy interview (really good) but more important to look up the word shrewdly. I heard that word in business, but I didn't really know what it meant. It means...
1. Characterized by keen awareness, sharp intelligence, and often a sense of the practical.
All that to get to this. I wanted to show everybody...

I just bought Steven Pressfield's The War of Art for kindle today. There's something to this particular chapter that I saw in the book preview that I think is said shrewdly.

Just because he says that so well I had to get the book. Just started it so I'll stop short of saying the whole thing's great. We'll see. High hopes though. So, shrewdly, here's to you...
