This writer is brilliant.
She writes so well, and her point-of-view is absolutely centered on ideas, thoughts, concepts — foundations — that are vastly deeper and wider than the merely day-to-day.
So many of us bloggers and commentators fall into the trap (pointing at self — Guilty!) of writing without paying attention to the bigger picture. “insanitybytes” — the blogger’s moniker — never seems to lose track of the bigger picture, and I am deeply grateful to her for it. (Btw, I’m assuming she’s a she!)(1)
I love her writing, and suggest that you read not only this post, but all her oeuvre. She’s a great thinker and an equally great writer.
(1) By way of some explanation, I have a woman colleague who sometimes uses the xPraetorius ID to write. If you view our “About” page, you will see under what ground rules she does that. The point: most times you can’t tell that she’s a woman, because she addresses issues only. She’s black, so she addresses race issues frequently. It’s kind of fun, sometimes, to watch black men fall all over themselves to accuse her of being a racist white man.
