the synesthete’s universe

Everything is Miscellaneous is proving to be the nostalgia book of the month for me, and I’ve barely cracked the spine. The Greek and Early Christian ideas about a perfect, universal order to the cosmos got me thinking about my library nerd book group. We met a few weeks ago to talk about Ambient Findability […]

summer reading- Potter, some light physics, and EiM

Evidently, we’re all hipsters now! Thank dog someone cleared that up!
