de Zen

The eminently quotable

“I quote others only in order the better to express myself.”

Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, whose name puts me in mind of Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (it must be the de - thanks Sopranos), said “Every man has within himself the entire human condition.” Montaigne is the patron saint of personal essayists. 

NACF and its forerunner have been, in part, a voyage of self-discovery. One of those discoveries is that I am not always as zen as I’d like to be, and the writing cure doesn’t always work the way I keep telling myself it should.

My preference would be to skim along, above all petty concerns. Being only human, I fall to earth. Hence these posts, and this open letter:

Dear FNRttC Powers-That-Be,

Could you add a courtesy link here to acknowledge the source, por favor?

Yours truly,
