Covid-19 and normalcy

So...hi. How are you? I'm writing this early days in Virginia's increasingly stringent isolation policies. Things have changed rapidly in the past few weeks. I feel overwhelmed.

Why you should take a break

Towards the end of January I turned in the last round of deep edits on a project that I had been working on semi-unexpectedly for about two months, referenced in my last post.

I'm a little late this time, which is on brand for 2019. You'll remember from my six month post that things were kind of all over... Continue Reading →
