A Thousand Words

… On many occasions, after receiving an email that seemed to be aflame, I have walked over to the persons office (…) to find out what they were really saying.In many cases what appeared to be a problem turned out to be poor communications in written form. How we use words can be very powerful. I have concluded that nothing in life can replace the face-to-face discussion to truly convey one’s thoughts and feelings.

my reply at the original post:

of course in communication and in understanding eachother a face to face contact can be irreplaceable, especially in business-like matters i think.
I am not so sure that this is also true for a discussion, when getting a deeper insight. is at stake. For me reading and especially writing is the better speed to be able to follow my own thoughts and to deepen them.
Face to face contact can also be very disturbing. Social interaction is not always to the point ; both partners can be unequally prepared for a fair debate; being proved right is often more important than getting a clarified perception; and without this “struggle” having a pleasant time together can be the more important thing.
So i think it’s not one side or another; both ways can have their advantages, depending on the context and the subject.

“Imagination is the voice of daring.
If there is anything
Godlike about God

He dared to imagine everything.”

Henry Miller

Maybe that’s the most  quality an artist should have:
the ability to see more
than what others can’t see,
to see all the billion things hidden in plain sight,
to see what others are too busy to see.

Never use the word, ‘very.’ It is the weakest word in the English language; doesn’t mean anything. If you feel the urge of ‘verywriting tips‘ coming on, just write the word, ‘damn,’ in the place of ‘very.’ The editor will strike out the word, ‘damn,’ and you will have a good sentence.

Let's Cool One

with Sonny RollinsThis interview with Sonny Rollins was commissioned as an NEA Jazz Masters oral history in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution’s Jazz Oral History Program, recorded on Feb. 28, 2011 at the Willard Hotel in Washington DC. Rollins, who was 80 years old at the time, seemed to enjoy the questions and the flow of the conversation, which stretched to nearly 3 hours, pausing only to change tapes.

 

 

Part 1:

Appelbaum:  Let me begin by just asking some basics to establish some context.

Tell us first of all the date you were born and your full name at birth.

Rollins:  Oh, I was afraid you were going to ask me that.  Ok, my full name at birth was

Walter Theodore Rollins, and I was born September 7, Sunday morning, 1930 in Harlem,

America on 137th Street between Lenox and 7th Avenues.  There was a midwife

that delivered me, and…
