Quote of the Day

I am saturated in digital life and I want to return to the actual world again.  I'm a human being before I am a writer; and a writer before I am a blogger, and although it's been a joy and a privilege to have helped pioneer a genuinely new form of writing, I yearn for other, older forms.  I want to read again, slowly, carefully.  I want to absorb a difficult book and walk around in my own thoughts with it for a while.  I want to have an idea and let it slowly take shape, rather than be instantly blogged.  I want to write long essays that can answer more deeply and subtly the many questions that the Dish years have presented to me.  I want to write a book.

-- Andrew Sullivan, "A Note To My Readers"
