Too many words. Too many words. Far too many words.

I just returned, again, from the local book store where, for once, I went determined not to buy a book. I simply toured the entire store thinking about why some writers are read and others are discarded.

I sense great futility.

The only point that brings me some measure of peace is this: If I can remain detached, detached from my own needs for recognition, then perhaps I can write only that which will give the most help to the specific group I am trying to help.

Otherwise, what is the point?

I am a dying man.

I cannot waste my words.

I cannot waste my energies.
