Saturday Good Reads

I watch the approach of Hurricane Irma like I watched the approach of Hurricane Harvey – like I watched several hurricanes when I was growing up. We thought we’d seen it all with Hurricanes Betsey and Camille. And then came Katrina. And Harvey. This life we live is a fragile one.

The waning of summer is a good time for nature photography. Tim Good has been walking the local prairie, and Susan Etole has watched the butterflies outside her window.

Some good poetry, too.

Rod Dreher at American Conservative tells the story of two janitors, one working at Eastman Kodak in the 1980s and one working at Facebook in the 2010s. Times have fundamentally changed.

Jon Mertz at Thin Difference has two posts on starting a conversation about America’s cities.
