  1. Ronovan: You know how I love Pat Conroy, and I’ve been meaning to share a quote of his with you to continue the dialogue you and I have had this past year. It is as follows: “When I find myself engaged in the reading of some magical, surprising book, I ask myself these questions: Can I match this depth? Can I incorporate this splendid work, ingest it whole into my bloodstream, where it can become part of my thinking and dreaming life? What can this writer do that I can’t? Can I steal the genius of this writer and learn all of the unappropriated lessons, then turn them into something astonishing that flows out of me because I was moved by the originality and courage and eloquence of another writer?” I think, Ronovan, that this, off of a writer who I hold in the highest esteem, is nothing less than word to the wise.
