Late (summer) better than never.

I’ve been debating about how to use this space, social media, or a potential newsletter. I’ve grown less fond of social media, a newsletter feels a bit too far, and this has been my internet blogging home for the last 15 years—so here we are. Looking at the last entry, it’s been a minute. I’m […]
