I want to live a life of art, discovery, and in-depth, no pressure learning. I want to learn about werid shit, discuss wild scientific theories, and analyze the facts that typical schooling keeps from us–by accident or design, it doesn’t matter–so I can experience the world in as many ways as possible.
My writing helps with that; it makes me research things I never would have before. But I think I learn the most from other people and their recommendations.
For example, a former teacher posted this article about Seneca Village, an African American community razed to make way for Central Park, and I was astounded.
