Recently, I made chicken wonton soup for the first time. (Here’s the recipe I used, if you’re interested.) Despite not having a goddamn clue when it came to folding them, they ended up just fine, and DELICIOUS, and there was no breakage. Sometimes you…

The plums have already bloomed, first off the mark like every year. Right behind them, the cherries are suddenly fleeced with pink. They hyacinths have made a good showing, and I’m hoping they naturalize. The poppies are green, prickly, and huge; even the…

After being utterly convinced all day yesterday that it was Friday, I am now in the middle of a Friday that feels like a Monday. Well, more like I’m in the first third of a Friday that feels like a Monday. My weekend is going to be full of research…

Things I Think About

In lieu of an actual post today, here are some things rolling around inside my head, in no particular order. * The Killer as Aesthete. I’ve been kicking around this idea of murderers portrayed with heightened sensory acuity as aesthetes for a while. From…
