Years ago, after a few ski lessons, the instructor said, "Now, go and put on mileage." Writing is like that too and Northern Insights is the means to gain mileage for my scribblings. It's done that to my satisfaction and I've been honored by a growing audience. I don't expect readers to agree with all or most of my interpretations and opinions. In fact, I'm sure you don't. However, I try to be factually accurate, which means that even an article that is a quick read may take hours of preparation.
I remember words of Mark Twain from 1869:
What a robust people, what a nation of thinkers we might be, if we would only lay ourselves on the shelf occasionally and renew our edges!Recommend this post
