A Welcome Review

Over on his blog, PatternWhichConnects, Jeppe Graugaard had this to say about my work. Last year we co-published three of these conversations which delved into some of the processes that underpin the sense of isolation and fragmentation we had both experienced (albeit in different ways) as well as the ways in which we were beginningContinue reading “A Welcome Review”

The flimsiness of my previous interactions with the core of this loose amalgam overcompensated in mental calculations assembled, as if in a geometric proof.
