We made something beautiful here: Nicole and Nikki and Mallory, everyone who wrote and drew, everyone who donated and boosted, everyone who commented. So glad The Toast and I were in the world at the same time.

This is so complex and nuanced and wise and generous. Thank you.

Later this week is great, or even later if need be!

I would be very pleased if you shared this with your students. A few other people I know have used the website as a text for a college class. I would also really, really love to see your syllabus, if you're willing to share it. publiclycomplex at gmail will find me.

Actually, as long as we're here, if you want to brainstorm together about something I could do WITH your students, I'd be up for that too.

I would love that. Feel free to get in touch at the email address above if you want to check if I'll be there on a particular day. I might have some questions for your husband about the work he does, too.

Rhode Island is a weird place. I'm a 12-year transplant with no plans to leave. I love Providence a lot, but that's partly because it meets my needs--there are a lot of people living here whose needs it doesn't meet at all.

Hurray! I see it! I'm actually about to head down and do a stint right now so I'll respond when I get back.

Yeah, it's a fine line. The other day I was like, "Maybe I should get a second pair of glasses in case NO ONE EVER MAKES GLASSES AGAIN." Which, like, it's fine to get a second pair of glasses, but ... that's not why.

Am I right in remembering that you actually work on climate science?

Thanks for saying so. I'm glad I do it and it's good to hear that it strikes other people too.

One of the things I'm working on now is how to like--spread it out? Make its impact greater? Give it additional forms and ramifications? Anyway, check back on the blog in a week or so because there should be more about that soon.

The Yellow Wallpaper also rules! And yeah, I see the parallel--not of what's happening exactly but of the feeling of coming undone, nothing holding, abandoning an old form without being able to fully reach a new one... UGH AMAZING
