When Suddenly You Wake Up Buried in Shit

I’m sitting here in my new coffee shop, drinking my new favorite hot beverage, in my new neighborhood, right across from my new apartment, as I write this–each of those things invigorating me in a way I would have never considered just a few months ago. Transition is funny that way. It happens and then a whole new world of... Read More

3 Min Marinade: Artificial intelligence & a benevolent universe
