Substantiation

St. Cecilia, the newest venture from Atlanta-area chef-proprietor Ford Fry and executive chef Brian Horn, buzzes. For such a cavernous space, it’s warm and loud and lively.

I’ve always wanted to pick it up but I pass it over for fear it would become one of those Ulysses-style reminders on my bookshelf – a literary testament to … Continue reading

Corradiation

I’m painfully hyper-stimulated. Every thirty seconds I’m clicking through some app on my phone, searching for snackable snippets of news or viral videos or weather updates or text messages  from boys or that song from that Disney villain. In writing this, I just tried to Google “focus” – what an unbelievably apt illustration of the … Continue reading
