I just returned from a walk on the beach, jumping in the water, searching for shells with my son.
I had nothing on me that couldn’t be underwater in the ocean — pretty much just the clothes on my back.
That’s when all the ideas hit me.

- The best essays because I had no notebook
- The best Tweets because I had no phone
This is how it always has been, of course. Ideas flow when we go without. Nowadays, we’re just rarely without.
