I am on vacation from work until the week after Thanksgiving. And I’m only working one five day week before the end of the year. Hurray for accumulated vacation days!
I’m not planning on doing a whole lot of work on my break. The links post will also be on vacation, but I am planning on getting some work done on an essay that I’m hoping to publish in the next couple of weeks. I also have some personal projects I’m planning on working on, including some painting and cataloging my TBR (remember me when I’m gone). Gotta get all my personal project ducks in a row because I’m pretty sure that the workload I’ve been dealing with the last few months is only the beginning.
I’ll also be taking a break from most social media, with the exception of the wandering.shop Mastodon instance, which is lovely and slow and reminds me of Twitter in the Before Times.

- New Bio of Sabina Spielrein: Raped By Carl Jung, Then Murdered by the Nazis And erased by her profession:
Spielrein’s story is a case history of pathological patriarchy, anti-Semitism, Stalinism, Nazism, and genocide. It is also the story of an incredible pioneering thinker whose ideas were freely borrowed by the Great Men of Psychoanalysis whose followers conspired in defaming and demonizing Spielrein’s character and all traces of her subsequent 30-year history of intellectual and clinical work.
- Vivian Shaw Answers Seven Questions I never got around to writing a review of Strange Practice, but I utterly adored it and want for there to be more books in this series; despite some gory bits, the setting and characters are simply wonderful.
