READING BACKWARD IN TIME. Blog technology is such that what's at the top of the page is only the latest, perhaps the last, thread in an extended reflection or conversation. Ordinarily, I would add the latest addition to a string of reflections at the bottom of the page. The latest presumes you have read and are up to speed on the line of thought. I just don't presume that. Maybe that's the residual of a journalist in me. Presume nothing. Reframe often.
