Outside my window, a band plays latin jazz by the pool as hotel guests in bikinis and swim trunks enjoy their first - third - or fifth cocktail of the day. I'm at the Ritz Carlton South Beach, a hotel that on first glance was somewhat ho-hum. There is a lot of competition for eyeballs in South Beach. I toured the hotel this morning with the sales director, and it has since surpassed my expectations. Incredible attention to detail and gorgeous architecture. And, amidst all of the noise in South Beach, it is a quiet spot.
I am here to take a break, and revive portablemind while I'm at it. While I've been way overdue for a good post, I've spent much of my time posting 140 character "mini posts" on Twitter. Today, I realized that Twitter is a perfect writing tool. I "tweet" throughout the day, and then have the perfect set of notes to construct a longer post or article.
I love it. Despite technology replacing my memory, and my handwriting continuing to deteriorate.
