.........................."To really write, you must read.
............................To really read, you must live."

for those of us unable to live, these can be time capsules, things to understand once we actually have a beginning. to dematerialize something like this is to ensure that it stays with us.

I've always hated reading aloud, since the days of endless social studies classes where the teacher would make all the kids take turns reading from the book. And I have difficulty listening to lectures or books on tape, because I fall asleep or space...
