I’m burned out for tonight.
The past week, I’ve done several discursive emails to others: on philo-
sophical politics, practicalities of educational reform, prospecting democratic education; how will Biden seek to counter authoritarian appeal…; and, offline, adding notes on pluralist truth, realism, value,….
You’re so glad to know.

Long emails to others (friends, contacts, the New York Times—Ha!—can be so fruitful. The relationship is evincive—often more than an anonymous audience of standard writing.
But the result isn’t easily transposed to blog postings, because directly shared context can avoid the kind of explication that writing to the ether needs to consider.
And long streams of thought and allusive reference to the other’s streams of thought can easily go on and on, as if in a trance.
Afterward, transposing that for a public feels invasive, if not exploitive.
