Magazines aren't dead

Magazines aren't dead. Our screen time just keeps us from taking the time to explore and enjoy them. Stop in at the Chicago/Main newsstand at the power reading corner of Main & Chicago in Evanston, IL. There you'll find an aisle of gorgeous magazines on the arts. While reading Letter Arts Review, one of five new magazines purchased, I came upon this, in reference to the rhythm of writing:

Come at it
the way you would
a pile of clothes on an empty beach at dawn.
Circle it slowly.
Hold the pieces up one by one.
Be a cop: ask questions.
