This blog is a collection of mini-essays, half-formed thoughts, meanderings, musings, ponderances, quips, and nothings by me, Katie, a writer/artist/thinker/procrastinator/dabbler who was born in Arkansas but lives in Michigan. Like me, this blog is a work in progress: it’s becoming…well, more becoming.
According to the inestimable OED, becoming is “befitting, suitable, having graceful fitness” and “that which is coming into existence.”
It turns out they’ll let anyone write a blog, so I’m sending a big shut-up to that voice in my head that’s telling me this is a corny waste of time. I want to add something becoming to The Internet. I want to find ideas and projects that are becoming to humanity–that flatter our best selves. I also want to write about improvement and progress–becoming, in that second, Aristotelian sense. And, most importantly, I want to have a conversation with you about big ideas and inspire you to explore some of your own.
Note: All header photographs were taken by me, in exotic locales such as Canada and my bathroom.
