I'm calling this "well-seasoned updates” to loosely refer to the fact that it will contain some spicy takes and that I aim to send it out roughly “seasonally,” though I haven’t quite decided how I’m defining “seasons.”

This newsletter is as much about collecting the things that influence me as processing and sharing my work; attempting a different—more honest, more contemplative, more timely—form of citation, perhaps. It's about acknowledging the works that shape me as they shape me, the notes I'm scribbling as I go, the questions too young to have answers, rather than only sharing them when I publish something that requires a bibliography or when I feel like I've "figured it all out."

Plus, my mom keeps asking what I'm working on, so: This is for you, mom.
