I was thinking that I should have a space online to aggregate my work (the "Written Elsewhere") page. It's been an interesting exercise, to look through 2010's stories and blog posts. At this point, I barely remember writing some of them, although I'm happy to report that in most cases I still agree with myself.

Looking back on my childhood, I measure time based on where I was. If that happened in California, it was middle school, therefore it was 1994 or 1995. Now looking at that list of articles, it seems like the new signposts for my personal life are national disasters and political events. The worst summer of my life corresponds pretty neatly to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which is actually metaphorically serendipitous, although I wish I had been less heartbroken during those months, so I could have had more étouffée.
