As ideas get a little more action, I will give them their own page and link to it. You’re welcome.


The Trash of Tulum. It’s everywhere, so much so that it seems like a normal part of the landscape. It’s the indicator of a town collapsing under the weight of its own popularity. Symbols of consumerist imperialism, the new American overreach.


DINK and the future of consumer hedonism. Dual Income, No Kids, and never needing to worry about a sitter or being home on time or losing sleep over the fact that you have to keep another human being alive.


Buying used books is the absolute antithesis of the subscription model that is destroying everything I love.


Writing words or drawing pictures – both ink on the page, but both are vastly different ways I tell a story. There’s something here. Right?


It feels like there is a universal malaise out there – like we’re all struggling through the thick of it, but now we’re having a different time dealing with it.
