Welcome to my new blog, “Stetch Your Mind,” which I’ll be using to share my thoughts on how people perceive and interact with this crazy, wonderful world. Some of my coming entries may have an educational purpose, as in my forthcoming series about how to learn Spanish or another foreign language on your own for free.
Sometimes I’ll provide literary observations on anything from The Iliad to video games, and sometimes I’ll just post things that amuse me, as in the case of my coming reposting of the Korean fairy tale about the flautist and the farting tiger. Please visit often and add your own comments and observations.
My name is Will, and this is my blog. I’m a writer, editor, and adventurer, and I live in Chapel Hill with my wife, Jessica, and dog, Clara. I’ve done a few interesting things in my life.
My brother and I have been surrounded by a herd of wild buffalo. I spend the night in a junkyard in Oxford, swam in an Icelandic spring and snuck into an empty monastary in Moscow; I’ve also been cheated out of $1,000 by the Embassy of Kazakhstan.
