This one time when I set out to learn everything…

2017 has been a very interesting year indeed. For one, I finally got that Vitamix I’ve always wanted. Oh wait, that was 2016 when the world was way less dramatic. Funny how that works. One year one finds oneself considering the importance of blending certain fruits and vegetables together for optimum health and general life performance and the next year one wonders if nuclear holocaust is upon us. SO. In light of the troubling tidal shift in our democratic institutions, I have set out to do my best at understanding what makes society tick. The following are excerpts and links to sources where I find some of the most fascinating and important topics. This might be a bit of an experiment with Medium but I want to utilize this cyber space for an opportunity to share and obtain information on these topics. If you have something to contribute to this piece, namely an article or publication, please share share share! Happy reading. Happy learning. Keep asking questions.
