In which I take comfort in rituals, and coffee. There's always coffee.
In which errors should be preserved and embraced, not just in the process of creating work, but in the finished product too. Errata and emendations are part of the story of the work.
In which Frank Chimero makes me think about the questions we ask about our work, and that of others. 'Why' often yields far more interesting answers than 'How', and leads to work that has meaning.

Running is an intriguing sport. Indeed, for many of us, 'sport' may be a misnomer. Our focus is not on others or how we fare against them.
