"One Essay a Night...

"One essay a night... From various fields: archaeology, zoology, biology, all the great philosophers of time, comparing them. Read the essays of Aldous Huxley, read Lauren Eisley, great anthropologist. . . I want you to read essays in every field. On politics, analyzing literature, pick your own. But that means that every night then, before you go to bed, you’re stuffing your head..."

- Ray Bradbury

August 2021: Essays are cooler than they sound.

The Commitment: Read one essay every night for the next 31 nights.

The Reason: "at the end of a thousand nights, Jesus God, you’ll be full of stuff, won’t you?"

- Ray Bradbury again
