“The limiting identity of expert…”

“Move on, Sontag urged. Leave the field untilled. Switch projects. Change hemispheres. Make a film. Direct a play. Write a novel. Fly to Hanoi.

Do You Overcommit? How To Deal with Problematic Multipotentialite Patterns

2014: A Year of Change, Upheaval and Growth

At the beginning of 2014, I had no idea what was coming. I hadn’t planned on having a transitory year that included so much upheaval, but that’s exactly what I got.
