>According to Wikipedia, “The practice of quoting out of context, sometimes referred to as ‘contextomy’ or ‘quote mining’, is a logical fallacy and type of false attribution in which a passage is removed from its surrounding matter in such a way as to distort its intended meaning.”
The longer I live away from the city, the more out of context I feel. But maybe it’s a fallacy to believe that there is a right and a wrong place to be. Maybe if I could look at myself from a greater distance, I would realize that where I am makes the most sense and matches who I am. Immediately, upon typing that last sentence, I am disturbed by the notion that this place ultimately suits me.
I am getting in the way of writing. I am standing in my own way.
A writer is someone who writes.
