Writing in Minimal Fare

Writing in Pico in the linux or unix shell strips away excess; what
remains is inner speech, a dialog of thought unencumbered by design. It's
difficult to work within boxes, colors, menu systems, corporate or other
headings. Here I think through the movement of concepts, ideas, emotions;
there, I founder on the barriers of software design. True enough, Pico
itself is design, but the design minimal; what is visible is primarily a
window of unadorned text, processed by a minimal number of commands. There
are no distracting images, no sounds or other annoyances (the arrival of
new mail, instant messaging, banner ads). It's as if writing has returned
to its source in the body and stele or table, and lost in eternity, stone
hardened writing should tend only towards existence. the self-inscribed
