Operative theory...

There is an economic theory operative in corporate boardrooms, I'm convinced, that propounds the populace might spend our way out of this Covid pandemic, or, at the very least, that business should exploit it as a unique opportunity to maximize profits. Every day, I receive multiple emails urging me to buy before I die. Invariably, these exhortations include images of all the stuff marketing experts, assisted by their AI, have calculated that I am just dying (no pun intended) to max out my plastic in order to possess. I resist all such entreaties as best I can, on the off-chance I might survive long enough to have to pay it all back with exorbitant interest.   Henry's books .

What I'm reading - Old Growth...

 I prefer the feel of paper books, but to accommodate my peculiar vision, I generally read on a screen. I couldn't find Old Growth in e-book format but I wasn't about to pass up a read where I can meet Robin Wall Kimmerer, Ursula K Le Guin and Rick Bass (along with a host of other notable writers) all under one cover. Especially, when they are writing about trees.

Orion Magazine puts out beautiful little volumes, and this one is no exception. The illustrations by Patrik Svensson are exquisite.
