Discursive thoughts on journalism, extinction and Substack. (Yeah, that's me and Hillary Clinton in the image.)
And don’t overlook the value to our mental health of reading about things other than bombs, politicians, and world suffering. The state of the world sucks and we’re all mortal, but if we don’t take a break in the woods once in a while, even a virtual one, we’ll go crazy.
Hi Bryan, This is great you’ve made it to Substack. I had no idea about your newspaper reporter background. I like Joyce Vance - Civil Discourse.
Bryan, eloquently said, as always. That painted bunting is amazing. A great reminder of nature’s beauty as we look at man’s desecration out our snow-vanishing landscape in Vermont. Substack must be the clunkiest name ever for a site for great reading! Does this make you a “Substacker?”
Wonderful essay. Bryan. The tonic of nature lives on if we take time to drink of it. Didn't recognize you with hair!!! Happy New year.
Heather Cox Richardson... she offers a historic perspective on today's news that is always interesting and well written.
Thanks, Wayne. If only I had 10 percent of her productivity! :-)
