Wisdom about his own letters

Wisdom for today; Hunter was looking back on his letters from the late 60’s and 70’s. He wrote this in the kitchen in 2000. “These letters, to me, are a sort of berserk historical record of my efforts to grope and flail and occasionally crawl along in the darkness and try to make functional sense of it. That is the best we can do, I think, and Luck has little to do with it. The real keys are timing, and balance, and the learned ability to know a hot wire when you see one.” Your friend, Anita Thompson.
