This page is devoted to longer-form essays of the meandering and comtemplative variety. "The Perils of Forced Teaming" and "Shattering and Mending," featured below, are hot of the presses. "Dear Graduate" is an older piece recently revised. "St. Mary's Woman" and "Forsaking all Others" were written within the last month, and "String of Pearls" within the last two months. Other such explorations on a wide variety of topics (one great benefit of essaying is that no topic is ever wholly off limits) will follow in the upcoming weeks and months.
