Happy New Year, readers! I have neglected this space for far too long. For those who do not know, I have been writing on Substack since early 2020. I wrote behind a paywall, and it was a freeing experience. All previous paywalled essays are still available on Substack. Starting this month, however, I am now writing public pieces on Substack. The first one is linked on this site. Going forward, I will be linking and excerpting my Substack pieces on this site, and I will also try to post some original content here, instead of letting this place develop dust and cobwebs. I have also tried to give this site a more minimal appearance.
