Welcome to the external hard drive of my brain. I blog on a variety of topics. They’re tagged but also roughly sorted into these categories:
books, movies, tv, music: A book, a movie, a show, a song. Was it amazing? Fun? Did I hate it? Am I now thinking deep thoughts about it? Come along for the ride.
doctor who: What is that certifiably insane time traveler up to THIS TIME?
daily life: Spilling coffee, working unpaid, and all those little things that make up a life.
dreaming politics: I’m always pondering how to build a better world. Or how to survive this one. I read, think, dream, act. It’s all here.
utopian: What could we do to build utopias? Liberatory practices, ambiguous utopias, possible worlds.
dystopian: Something messed up is happening somewhere, large our small, roughly pointing us toward one or more dystopian futures. Read this if you are in the mood to fix something you cannot accept.
my writing: What have I published? Struggled with? Where can you go to read my latest work?
public education: Public schools belong to the people, not corporate interests. Teachers organizing professionally and politically is A Good Thing. And every students needs something different to learn well.
teaching writing: I’ve taught writing to K-12 students (unpaid) and college students (paid) and have both Opinions and Concrete Tools to share.
everything else: This category means, “I didn’t know where to put this post.”
My posts also appear occasionally on Ambling Along the Aqueduct.
