  • Top posts of 2017

    New year, new blog posts? I haven’t quite gotten that ball rolling yet, so in the meantime, here are some older posts you may have missed. These were the most-viewed posts on my blog last year – though the top 3 were actually published in 2016; ;t can sometimes take a while for a post […]

  • Favorite links: November 2017

    There’s a bit of a contrarian/myth-busting/generally cranky theme running through a lot of the links this time. No apologies, because sometimes (often) those things are necessary.

  • Favorite links: long reads

    Since it’s been literally months since I did one of these link posts, I decided to round up my favorite longer, more in-depth reads this time. There are a couple shorter articles thrown in here too. Here’s my favorite, the poem “Kindness”: “before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside, you must know sorrow as the […]

  • Favorite links 10/23
