This page is both a rejection of immediacy & a provision of context for those whose path might wander across mine. I do not wish to give anyone the impression I welcome persistent access to my activities or inner life, so I will not revise this on a schedule. I will update this as the context shifts. These are the books, shows, & tunes recently shaping my perspective on our world.
