and other things we need to think

more about

A collection of essays about identifying and using the power we have as members of the American body politic to work together for our common good. The essays also emphasize our mutual dependency and cover a range of topics from personal and spiritual development to issues that impact our interactions with one another in the public sphere: the environment, economics, entertainment, mass transit, politics, and race relations.


“Choosing a Life in the Dark Age,” is one of the most courageous, and powerful pieces, that I’ve read in a very long time. “Rules for Women Who Can’t Do Enough” feels so personal, that it could be a private letter.
