I want to take a small break from my thesis-writing to thank some folks for the very kind things they've said about me and done for me lately. First, thanks to you, reader, for stopping by my little corner of the big wide Internet. And thanks to those of you who have enjoyed it enough to pass it on elsewhere. It's pretty exciting (and honestly a teensy bit scary) to see your words quoted and linked on somebody else's blog, recommended on Twitter, and highlighted as a thing worth reading. There are only so many hours in a day, and I am delighted that there are people who find my words worthwhile enough to spend some of that precious time on.
