...won't keep the doctor away, or anything, but I still say a daily essay can make your life better.
How handy there is a website called "Essay Daily" to help you get your fix!
Over at Essay Daily, they periodically run a feature called "The Midwessay," featuring essays set in the Midwest, and I am extremely excited to say that they published an essay of mine last week: You Can't Go Home Again.
I've read a lot of the other Midwessays there, and they all provide a slightly different look at a region that doesn't often get a lot of love. The entire site is highly recommended!
