For those who enjoyed this article, I'd highly recommend you to Alex's short-form articles at http://short.retinart.net/. 31 days of writing one post per day — these articles, and emailing back and forth with Alex, are what got me excited about blogging again.
This is probably one of the most beautifully written things I have read in a long time, maybe even ever. Thanks for posting.
This piece was what made my subscription to The Manual last year worthwhile, and will probably lead to me renewing the subscription—in hope that there will be others like it. It was quite the gem.
Wow. I cannot even begin to imagine.
You have to read this when in right mindset.
