Upgrading my avatar / December 27, 2021

For a while now, I've been using this drawing of me by Hallie Bateman as my avatar: I love it, particularly because I'm a big fan of Hallie's work. But it's also not quite me, exactly: you get the same whimsical drawing no matter the topic. I used to be a big ...

Thoughts and actions for the week of December 13 / December 13, 2021
