As I write (or type, or otherwise compose for viewing) this short piece, I think of how difficult it must have been in the past to transfer one's trivial or otherwise quotidian thoughts to someone else. You'd have had to compose them carefully, and the recipient to receive them thoughtfully. You would not have had the throwaway ease of the electronic note, or even of paper, in past eras.
And here we are, generations succeedingly more deprived of the ability to focus our attention on information and its construction. Sometimes, there must be long gaps of peace amidst the tumult of our war.
