[the little spruce tree]
In my literature studies, I always appreciate a work that’s real and honest, a work that manages to convey great meaning through economy, clarity, and familiarity of style, rather than through heavy, florid turns of phrase. A while back I came across a blog that struck me as really real, and striking—even audacious—in its honesty. [the little spruce tree], “a blog about life,” belongs to a fellow named Daniel whose writing possesses that nearly inscrutable ability to convey depth of significance through the same economy, clarity, and familiarity of style that I value in literary texts. No matter what the message, I never feel weighed down or otherwise burdened by what I’m reading.
So if you get tired of the never-ending jejune frivolity and jocularity here at Puck’s Prattle, head on over to [the little spruce tree] for some light and healthy vegetarian food for thought.
