      I love writing… so that won’t stop. It’s usually an annual question for reflection and strategy, whether or not to continue blogging in this format.

      In the past five years, I’ve increasingly used Twitter to share links to articles (I used to do that more here on the blog). This is sometimes more of a home for essays. Maybe I’ll reboot the blog in some form… I don’t know.
