If you’ve followed my writing over the past 15 years or so, you might have noticed that its become a little sparser and more irregular. Scattered across several parts of the internet too. The short form ideas that I used to blog about have become reduced to tweets, or just not shared at all. At the same time the sheer volume and diversity of things that I have to talk about has vastly increased — my work in museums has grown and broadened, my music and art experiences similarly. And, as an ageing parent, there are all sorts of other new things I didn’t know I cared about too.
In my ‘unpublished drafts’ lie a stack of half written pieces — moments that still carry weight and meaning but are too long for social media but too unformulated for a fullscale article.
So, following the lead of some friends, I’m trying a new thing — a return to a semi-regular email newsletter.
Sometimes this will be — a short essay; a series of thoughts about museums, music, art, life; a playlist; a set of links. And sometimes all of the above.
