The Flâneur and the Saunterer

A first, stumbling step beside the coffee table. A wobbly turn of the pedals. An unexpected lurch when you step on the gas: the great milestones in life –  and in human history – involve transportation, but none more so than the initial steps taken by our African ancestors six million years ago that led to bipedalism.  Perhaps it was in pursuit of prey, or to escape a predator, but somewhere around modern-day Kenya or Chad, early humans discovered that two legs worked better than [...]

Love, laughter, and the Lasso effect

There can be something mildly satisfying about standing in the check-out line at your go-to grocery store, waiting for Jill, or whoever your favorite checker might be. We can recognize that “self check” might save time and certainly save the grocery management salaries, but waiting (im)patiently in line allows us to listen in on a variety of casual conversations. There are the predictable musings from a nearby couple about whether all the groceries on the list have been collected. There may be the fragment of [...]
