If something is worth reading...
March 31, 2005
...it's worth reading 3 times.
And each of the 3 times is worth doing in 3 different ways.
1st: read it like a newspaper
2nd: read it as if aloud to a friend
3rd: read it for yourself, or as if it was a prayer
(I got the idea from a Gurdjieff book.)
Probably a little time between readings doesn't hurt.
Quality writing has something to offer...forever...as you change and the world changes, it changes, always staying ahead, pulling.
Finding the eternal aspect of a writing is a cool thing. All writing has an aspect that becomes dated. The best writing has relatively more of the kind that just keeps pulling.
