Over the past year I have been writing furiously, passionately, ignoring all the academic conventions that quell innovation and free thought. I neither expected nor sought recognition for these essays, I craved only catharsis. Today I received much more; I learned that some of my personal essays caught the attention of the editors of Quillette magazine, a highly acclaimed publication that features the narratives of the “Renegades of the Dark Web”. Quillette has featured the work of some of the world’s most prominent and yes, controversial iconoclastic free thinkers. To have my ideas associated with intellectuals such as these is humbling and beyond my wildest imagination. Please forgive my exuberance but I could not hold this in! Monday I am being interviewed by the editorial staff to discuss the how to frame my work for their publication. More updates to come.
