This is ONE OF 4 responses to VC 17 John 15 ("Ebb and Flow")...

I will have to think about the question for a while. There are interesting points for "both sides".

The only immediate thought I have to offer is about the current set-up. It is a bit distracting to wait until the second round before your cards are replied to. I write to you, John, in "real" time. Usually you repond to my cards at the next Voice edition. The other players cannot. They are just receiving my cards. I don't read their responses until the following round. I don't know about anyone else, but I tend to lose enthusiasm over time, and for some thoughts, a reply two months later loses its interest. Well, actually, I will confess to forgetting the emotions I experienced when writting the original card.

This is not a big problem. After all, I only write to some people every year or so, which makes two months seem like a phone call.
