This week’s links contain two short pieces from a couple of websites I don’t normally visit. I got a hold of these stories through recommendations from my usual sources of internet reading. I appreciate hearing different voices and escaping the echo chamber.
What I’ve Read:
Always and Never | Whatever – Sci-Fi author, John Scalzi, pens this response to a question about financial security. His answer is funny, insightful, and could be applied to many middle class families. I like that he takes into account the uncertainties and fortunes of life in his reply.
Smells the Same | Lucky Peach – This short personal memoir details life during the heyday of Fulton Fish Market in New York City. I enjoyed the format of this essay; the printed pages imitate a college essay with pictures and captions scattered along the sides. I also wish I could sketch like author and end my writings with a similar flair.
