Hi, everybody.

The picture above is one of my favorite -- taken in 1958, it shows a woman sitting on her luggage in Grand Central Terminal, seemingly taking in all of the chaos around her. That's how I feel sometimes, or maybe how I'd like to feel: an observer, calmly making sense of the madness around me.

I’ve been blogging for a very long time in addition to writing on Medium for over two years. I'm an historian and educator most interested in how the past shapes our present.

On Medium, I write about history, education, the environment, and politics with an occasional foray into humor.

I publish a weekly newsletter on fascinating historical artifacts.

You can check out all of my projects, follow me on social media, or contact me by using the links on my website.

If you have enjoyed my work, and you are in a position to do so, I would be forever grateful if you could support me.

The easiest way to do this is to sign up to receive an email whenever I publish by clicking here.

You can also "buy me a coffee" by clicking here.

Thanks for reading; it's been a delight to be able to share my ideas with you on Medium!
