    January 5, 2016

    Writers don’t like listicles. They cite an absurd mish-mash of topics and a yawn-worthy, predictable structure.

    December 1, 2015

Rather than looking upwards to avoid the pressures of proximity, today everyone looks down at the palm of their hands. They stare at handheld devices as if all of life’s answers were there.
