As a frustrated, and currently inactive writer, I often lament the passing of long-form journalism and use it as my excuse for inactivity.
Then, out of the blue, the "Old Grey Lady" publishes an astonishing piece online that not only revives the form, but redefines it for modern times by including video and stills, in addition to brilliant writing. Could this be the future? I sure hope so.
The piece is about an avalanche - I won't say more because you should read and view it for yourself.
I can't say I read this piece because it is more than that, it is to be experienced. Experience it I did and felt my pulse quicken in awe and with glee.
To paraphrase Dirty Harry, " go ahead, make your day."
