I’m sitting by the fire drinking coffee as a wet and heavy snow falls over North Dakotaland. Winter is here!
Fortunately, It’s well over 30 so I won’t have to shovel, but I do worry about the trees and the folks out driving on the beet campaign. Wet and sloppy roads make a long night of driving challenging.
For the rest of us, it feels like a good day to stay indoors, and, if possible, focus on some reading and writing.
Here are some quick hits and varia for the first days of winter:
- Photos of storm damage in the Argolid.
- Opium in Cypriot base-ring juglets.
- Rhetoric of dreaming.
- RIP David Jordan.
- Goodwin Award winners from the SCS.
- Digging in the Trash.
- Women’s Rage Syllabus.
- Allergy to Originality.
- University presses are thriving.
- Timex Marlin Automatic.
- Once again, I did not win a MacArthur.
- What I’m reading: Connie Y. Chaing, Nature Behind Barbed Wire: An Environmental History of the Japanese American Incarceration. Oxford 2018.
- What I’m listening to: Freddie Hubbard, Straight Life.
