Quoted @JimPethokoukis

Socialists like Bernie and AOC should take an hour or so and read some Wikipedia entries on successful companies: Apple, Amazon, Google, Costco, Walmart. They are all fascinating stories, and show what an amazing thing it is build something like them.

I swear, I was just telling my husband about writers whose work I automatically make time to read, and I mentioned this author. And what do you know? This showed up in my feed a few hours later, like magic:

Thanks to the New Ohio Review and their excellent editors for publishing this essay, in which I reckon with my ever-present longing for another life. The coda: I love my life as it is and also want a sheep ranch. The Art of Longing via @wordpressdotcom

If you are one of those people for whom Elizabeth Bishop's poem "One Art" strikes a chord, you might enjoy this essay. Endless thanks to editors @NewOhioReview for their guidance.

Exercises for a Nature Writer

Chronic pain has often kept me house & town-bound. I still make nature notes, but my finest times are when I can (for a while) rise early, range widely. This written from that - & as a keepsafe for times when my world slows & shrinks again...

🐺 Update : Our biologists have received notification back from a genetics lab confirming that 4 scat samples collected near a scavenged elk carcass in Moffat County in early Jan. came from wolves. It's the first official documentation of wolves in Colorado since the 1940s.

The Colorado Senate just gave preliminary approval to a bill that would allow dogs on Colorado restaurant patios.

Instead of "yay" or "nay," it passed by a preponderance of "woofs." #copolitics #coleg

@wrefinnej @SemiEmily @thenormalschool @StevenWChurch Completely OBSESSED with this interview, as a fellow suburban writer fixated on place and family--obv I already have your book, Jenny, but I am placing an order for Emily's book ASAP!

So interesting to consider these books together. One theme for me is that both books, and all three of us, share this interstitial space: Midlife, middle of the country, midway between the natural and developed worlds.

Is this your chicken?

It just walked into our office at 530 Merrimon to ask about fighting corruption, fighting for healthcare, and not nibbling around the edges of inequity like a chicken.

I'm serious tho I have your chicken

I'm dying—a chicken walked into our North Asheville office and laid an egg. 😂

If this is your chicken, please come and claim it, the office is growing attached to it.

🚨EXCELLENT SHORT STORIES 🚨I interviewed two writers about using place to escape our existential despair, nostalgia, the madness of grieving narrators, and other stuff. Thanks to the very talented @wrefinnej, Emily Wortman-Wunder and @StevenWChurch.

What's a weird fact about your hometown that more people should know?

“Debutante” is a code word for ‘sacrificial virgin’, but you get to wear a great dress.
