Last week I received the best rejection letter. And the biggest ever surprise.
“Thankyouforyourtime” I typed, all jumbled.
Not a form rejection. No, sir.
From a hi-fi site. Literary topnotch
Amazing.. .Someone actually took the time.
Told me: this is nice, that is nice, but this is missing. Bigtime.
To correct- do this, do that.
Made a ton of sense. Held a mirror.
Once I’d moved out of a sulk, which took some doing, it made a ton of sense.
Ever walked into an once- buzzing store where all the shelves are empty now, except for frayed greens? Ghostly feeling.
I continue to be amazed at changing frames of reference. Something that was life-blood, now is not. Just not. Good to know.
Paul Samuelson, RIP. Still remember the heft of that economics textbook.
