Monthly Round-Up: April 2023

It’s May already! But before we zoom off into this new month of an unnecessary coronation, forced patriotism and more royal propaganda and brainwashing than any sane person can handle, let’s take a look back at what I wrote about during April.

I questioned AI; in this case, literally. I asked Chat GPT why people choose to read and write. Its answers were formulaic yet insightful to the limitations of AI.

I read The Boy I Am by K. L. Kettle, a YA dystopian novel, in which traditional gender roles are reversed. It’s set in the future, but the themes here echo those in our own world. Powerful stuff.

I listened to the new album from Jessie Ware: That! Feels Good! (It’s very, very good).

I reflected on our recent trip to Munich and Salzburg during the Easter vacation.

Finally, I wrote about this book: These Envoys of Beauty by Anna Vaught, in which the author reflects on her close relationship with the natural world, and how is has soothed her in times of crisis.

What did you get up to in April?
