Saint Brevity, Patron of Blagueurs

A god on the light post at my corner, November 2022.

“A wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.”

(Nobel Laureate Herbert Simon, 1971)

Like a bird on a pole,
Like a soul on the dole,
I have tried all my ways
To be brief.
(JMN, after Leonard Cohen)

(Harold Simon is quoted by Zeynep Tufekci, “What Would Plato Say About ChatGPT?” New York Times, 12-15-22)

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
