For the ninth issue of Kinfolk, I contributed an essay called Protecting Saturdays.
"We are living in the future. We’re more technologically dependent, information hungry and intricately connected than any previous generation. We live and drive and date at warp speed. We are a people of the “ringtone,” the “ping,” the “like,” the “poke” and the tweet. We upload, download, refresh, shareware and crowd-source. We are always consuming, connecting, working. Many have swapped privacy for connectivity. But there’s one part of life that we won’t surrender to the aggressive forces of “noise, news, now” in our house: We will fight to protect Saturday."
