the black-eyed woman

It's September of 2019, and I'm still revising a draft I started almost a year ago. A lot happens in the space of one year. So many things have changed. I feel like I don't contain the same cells. Like someone rewrote my code. Maybe they did. I'm not the same person I was a... Continue Reading →

seven months

The date took me by surprise today. I was scribbling down my schedule--I travel so much these days, it’s hard to keep the days straight--when I realized I’d forgotten what the day was. Grief is funny like that. It’s taken seven months, but here I am, finally at the point where it’s no longer piercing... Continue Reading →

Stigma

Many months have passed since the last blog post. I usually try to find something to say at least once a month, but May, June, and July passed in silence.

On the Importance of Shouting Into the Void

While there are few commonalities the internet of 1999 shares with the internet of today, one thing hasn't changed. Here is its most potent magic: with the push of a button, you can be heard. Any time, anywhere, from your phone, computer, or tablet, you can always shout into the void. Today's internet is billions... Continue Reading →
