“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

Terroir #00Aiii(7) This is Pangæa, the big island of Earth, about 335 million years ago. Like the floating lumps on a  big iron pot of brontosaurus stew, it started to break up about 175 million years back. Keith Slee and Assoc., Besp0ke Wallmongers, recommends no new border walls or fences should be built until we improve their elasticity. Our people can put your people in touch. [Usual connectors.] In the meantime, keep stirring.
