SEVEN JOYS, SEVEN ISSUES: A DAILY MENTAL AND CIVIC DISCIPLINE FOR A FULL LIFE
The seven joys are the joy of math, literature, science, music, art, sports, and random stuff. Seven joys, seven days. I try to deepen my appreciation for each joy (and ward off dementia) by writing about one of them a day. Reading without writing is like eating without digesting. Writing without sharing is a very one-sided conversation.

There are seven issues so important that they should impact electoral choices. Seven issues, seven days. I try to deepen my understanding of each by writing about one per day.
