I'm mostly off the major social media platforms these days so I'm turning to this page to share pictures, articles, and holiday observances.
But I’ve also made a list of subjects and questions that I think about and return to quite often. I'll try to use this space to see how well I might be able to examine, clarify, come to grips with—definitely share my confusions about—some of those topics.
I'm very fond of the personal essay form. As I understand it, or at least have memorably encountered it as a reader, the personal essay is a way of writing that prefers a series or sequence (or bundle or hodgepodge) of digressions, associations, tangents, and (of course) epiphanies in order to record the shape of an individual's thinking and feeling.
