Welcome to Steelsnowflake!

Going on six years of writing here, my goal for 2023 is to keep publishing engaging long-form essays on topics in the humanities. My bet is that people are still willing to read something requiring a few minutes of time and attention that wasn't created to shock, outrage, or sell you something you don't need.


No, not here. 


While you're visiting, have a look around to see if anything catches your interest. I write on the topics I'm passionate about, mainly history, philosophy, literature, poetry, art, and whatever else comes to mind. Ideally, I like mixing these topics into a kind of humanities stew. After all, they're all the same thing: stories about people telling us truths about ourselves. 


Finally - and I hate that I have to say it - but the writing here will never be AI-generatedWhether good or bad, it's all me and always will be. What's the point otherwise? I'll not let a robot do my thinking or writing for me.


No, not here. 

Anyway, let me know if you like (or hate) something you read. It's good to hear from other readers out there. I'm one too. We have that in common and, I suspect, a lot more.


As always, thanks for stopping by.

- Paul D. W.
