The world is a crazy, beautiful, ugly complicated place, and it keeps moving on from crisis to strangeness to beauty to weirdness to tragedy. The caravan keeps moving on, and the job of the longform writer or filmmaker or radio broadcaster is to stop - is to pause - and when the caravan goes away, that's when this stuff comes.

The truth of the matter is, beauty is a specific thing, rare and fleeting. Some of us have it in our teens, 20s and 30s and then lose it most of us have it not at all. And that's perfectly okay.

The trick of this thing and the beauty of this thing is that it's a cowboy movie first and then stuff happens.

And that's what's incredible about it because nobody has done that before, that's new territory.
– Harrison Ford

The pattern of a newspaperman's life is like the plot of 'Black Beauty.'

– A. J. Liebling
