What is Good about Short

A good book with lots of pages is a pleasure. But much writing is filler. More words than needed. More information than necessary. 

Write at least 300 words! We have a standard length. 

The greatest texts are short. The Bard's soliloquies . Poems. Spiritual affirmations. Lyrics. 

The unsung American philosopher Charles Sanders Santiago Peirce left a lifetime of notes. Squibs. All pointing toward a magnificent unity.  Pierce is remarkable. He sees no ends. We are a continuity.  We are community whether we "know" or not. 

What's good about short is: it does not pretend to completion. It leaves room for the community. It is a building block.
