Dear August,

I have been following you & I have even been working on not being late with you, but this is the new great! Thank you. Reading your articles is like a few minutes of therapy for me. I appreciate you, sir, so much!

You took something fairly old, & shined a new light on it. It’s true, a lot of life could be lived on auto pilot, but good writing isn’t one of it. That’s (supposedly) one of the main reasons Hemingway could no longer live — because he could no longer write.

So good mental health is all to writing, which makes all the sense in the world. Thank you for that reminder as well very helpful suggestions.
