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:
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.
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.
