I collect essays, letters, obituaries and any display of good writing in compact form. If I agree with it it helps. But I do collect writings with which I disagree as well -- if it is well written. I have a filing cabinet drawer full of clippings, magazines and photocopies, but today one can find many of them on the web.

Every once in a while I reread one. I won't bore the readers of this blog with them often, but here's one of my favorites: The Silent Friendships of Men.

Concise, well-written, humorous, and a good story. The kind of writing I wish I could do.
