Succinct

I’ve been tackling a book: From Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik. The author is a frequent contributor to The New Yorker, and his award winning work is eloquent to say the least. The memoir of his years living in Paris is explorative; he dives into the country’s culture and appropriately weaves in and compares nuggets of…

Try Honesty

So, my last post at Syracuse New TImes was taken with offence. It’s not a bad thing, but it’s not a good thing. I have a heart and a conscience, but at the same time the writing is necessary to be honest. Some of the things that come out on the page come out dickish, which…

Thrice Thursday

It’s that time, folks. Insight into both posts today. Yeah, about that. So, I’ll keep this third post really short. Over at SNT, which is turning into my new home rather than the WordPress world — for this, I am sorry. Today’s post is a two-fer, because second guessing got the best of me after writing…
