The World Is Always Coming to An End

Book Summary from Amazon: “In the late 1960s and 1970s Carlo Rotella grew up in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood—a place of neat bungalow blocks and desolate commercial strips, and sharp, sometimes painful social contrasts. In the decades since, the hollowing out of the middle class has left residents confronting—or avoiding—each other across an expanding gap […]

Thank You to Ezra Klein: From a Mathematically Disinclined Black Girl

As a young girl, I remember crying and struggling over math at the kitchen table. Suffering to reason though what seemed to me to be ethereal concepts of nothingness. I’m the kind of person who needs to understand the context of a thing to understand its mechanics. But math didn’t seem to have any. It was […]

The Objectification of Men

Just as men are often blamed for objectifying women (and rightfully so), women objectify men. Not sexually, but as financial gets; As achievements or objects they can carry to events on their arms.  A couple of days ago, I saw a video entitled, “How I Manifested a Husband.” I’m sure this is is just click bait, but it […]

It is extremely difficult for me to learn things with context and destination. In trying to etymologically place my studies, there didn’t seem to be a succinct explanation of where the hell the information was coming from. Finally, one […]

A Wicked Problem

A presentation on Ken Wilbur’s Wicked Problem model using gun violence in Chicago as an example. A map of the influencers, stakeholders, perspectives, and contributing factors.


If we sat more than one at a cafe table, we’d have someone to watch our laptops while we took bathroom breaks. If we said hello to our neighbors, we’d have someone to dogsit. If we called our family members back, we’d have a ride to the store.  But our focus on getting shit done […]

Addicted to the Wrong Side of Rapture

There’s this thing I’ve observed. Where we keep ripping the scabs off our wounds so we can feel the rapture of pain. We get addicted to the feeling. That sweet sorrow. Where we roll around in it. And others will watch. Sometimes, they toss gifts of pity while we perform in our mud pits of […]
