Thank you: This issue marks one year’s worth of this weekly newsletter. It started out as a way for me to summarize my thoughts on a piece and force some self curation I thought may be helpful for others interested in similar spaces and industries. Based on the feedback I’ve gotten, it seems to be satisfying my initial thesis! Thank you for reading. I’ll do my best to keep it interesting and informative. As always, please let me know what I can do to improve and make it a more valuable read.

Quote I’m thinking about: “At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” – Albert Schweitzer
