ABOUT the ADDENDUM
The Addendum is an occasional blog about cities, culture, books, writing, photography, and painting. Here is where I post my thoughts and reflections, updates about projects I am working on, and other original content.
The blog takes its name from small publications that were inserted into books with corrections, additions, and expansions, allowing a book to be updated without reprinting; The Addendum serves much the same function for this site.
