HELLO WEB DENIZENS!
didn't i just write you? why yes i did, but i've decided to switch to a regular, monthly newsletter. dependable, consistent, reliable. also, my newsletter host makes me pay monthly, and it's expensive, so i thought, might as well get the most for my cash. besides the usual news, i'm also adding a little list of recommendations at the end. things i'm reading, watching, listening to that you might like too. i don't have a fun name for it yet, but maybe something like ¡ME GUSTA!?? anyway, it's the first wednesday of the month, here we go!
NEVERTHELESS WE PERSISTED - OUT NOW!!
i've written an essay in the new book "nevertheless we persisted", and it's now available! the book is a guide / pep talk / encouragement for young adults (and really, everybody) to keep on keeping on in these troubled times. it features writing from such awesome folks as sen. amy klobuchar, trans hero gavin grimm, out-NFL-er wade davis, and many many more. i wrote about growing up in virginia and the story behind my song "you sailor".
