Hi everyone! You may have noticed a few posts missing from this blog. I’m in the middle of reorganizing my two blogs so that they are more tightly on topic. Going forward, this will be my blog for writing about Southwest China specifically and travel, reading, and writing more generally. I plan to write posts on particular destinations, reviews of restaurants–especially in Chengdu, tips on getting around, and much more. My poetry, short creative prose, and reading journal will continue to appear on this site. My essays that focus on social critique, philosophy, scholarly topics, and general reflection will appear on my other blog: stephenboyanton.com. If you’re looking for a piece that used to be here and can’t find it, that’s probably where it is. Thanks for your patience while I get everything sorted out and running!
