This blog is my platform for sharing thoughts on arts and culture (both high culture and pop culture). Most of the blog posts will be about Chicago-area museums, libraries, and zoos. Others will be about movies and television shows. Occasionally, I may write about grammar. The blog posts will be a mixture of stories about current events and revisions of articles I wrote for Examiner.com Chicago between 2010 and 2016 or movie reviews I shared with friends. In some cases, I may be sharing previews of chapters of books I’m writing.
