I’ve collected some of the posts here that I like a lot, or that other people seem to like a lot.

Haram at the Beach – the beach as a liminal zone for Muslim women and their families.
Meditation on a Broken Horse – thinking about the process of excavating a horse skeleton.
Texting and the Telegraph – on the relative affordances of media separated by a century.
