that’s what he said

Words are powerful vehicles. They transport ideas from the imagination to a universe of interpretation.  Words approximate the largeness of experience and make the grand, scale-able.  Language families are like frequencies for the energy bound up in words.  Entrenched consonants and vowels make, break, and remake the mind.

Cold and Windy

It is ridiculously windy and it’s been so cold lately.  I’m going to need to start layering excessively for my walk to and from school.  This weekend I have to revise my open memo.  It shouldn’t be too difficult since I did very well on my first draft.  I just need to iron out a […]

Access: Cool things law students do

Law school is transformative.  It requires discipline, decisiveness and a sense of time, for the sake of time management.  It sharpens the mind, and reframes big and small questions.  It’s all very self aggrandizing.  That said there are many opportunities for a law student to take all that they have been given and make it […]
