To less patient readers. I am in dense academic writing mode and it’s almost impossible to switch into readable blog prose.
On the other hand, should you experience any troubles reading me, practice close reading techniques: slow down, savor not just the meaning but the sensuality of language, understand that, unless I’m blogging about the terrible, terrible, terrible elections and their aftermath, I often write with a smile in my prose.
Look for the smile.
If all else fails, load up on your intoxicant of choice (chocolate, coffee, wine) and pretend that I am equally drunk, and that we bear no responsibilities for what we say and how we say it.
