What’s a fogou, I hear you ask. It’s an ancient Cornish subterranean dry-stone structure of unknown purpose. The purpose of this fogou, however, is to serve as a repository for fascinating, heart-warming, surprising, illuminating, or cringe-worthy stories I stumble upon during forays in the land of the internet. This is also the place where I will post quotes from the novels and short stories I read. I borrowed the idea from the writer Leah Libresco.

The Generative-AI eruption

Trump’s foolish Bible stunt

How would you respond to authoritarianism?

The underbelly of the American self-conscious

How to have an impossible conversation

Attending to the national soul

Some fairy tales may be more than 6,000 years old

Mindfulness as a symptom

The journey changes you
