Hello gentle reader—I haven’t sent out a new entry since the end of July even though I write all the time. It feels like it’s been a few days and many years since then. Has it for you? Thank you for still being here. I have finally decided to move this newsletter of over five years (!) to Substack. I have been reticent because I enjoy the quietude of tinyletter. It is unassuming, even in platform name; something I can’t figure out how to be. There are also thousands of newsletters now, with many voices that are more articulate, brilliant and friendly than mine, but I need courage in spite of all. What else are we doing if not the things we need to remember we are alive?
