I Want This To Be My Life's Motto

Tuesday, January 30, 2007

"So long as I remain alive and well I shall continue to feel strongly about prose style, to love the surface of the earth, and to take pleasure in solid objects and scraps of useless information."

-George Orwell, "Why I Write"

I guess I should add to that that I hope that I can convince others why the information is in fact useful and important. But, there is also a thrill in just knowing. In being aware of the huge amount of information that is not useful, and loving it nonetheless.

Written Pyramids is a blog written by a journalist living and working in Washington D.C.

I have left my real name off of the blog so as not to imply that the blog is somehow linked with the journalism I get paid to do. (Still, I never write about my beat on this blog, and rarely express opinions about the day's news regardless of its relationship to my beat).

I would love to hear from you. If you want to contact me directly rather than leaving a comment here, I can be reached at WrittenPyramids@gmail.com.
