Welcome to The Palmer Press

There is a cheesy Gladiator movie line "Sometimes I do what I want to do. The rest of the time, I do what I have to." I feel that this site is both something I wanted to do and needed to do, it is a labor of love. I have to write to help me organize how I think, but I also wanted to share it so that it might help others that are going through a similar process of self discovery.

My bi-weekly (though inconsistent) email newsletter is still my preferred method of sharing my writing, however this site will regularly be updated with essays that I have modified for a more general audience. This way, the content that I thought was important enough to send via email is not lost in the inboxes of my earliest readers. To receive this newsletter, you can subscribe here.

The most important parts of the site are the suggested reading and listening. Everything that is written here is absorbed from somewhere else, and it is usually one of those sources. I unfortunately do not get paid to sit around and think, so I try to consume what others who do have the opportunity to do that come up with and then share it here.

The second most important part of this site is you. I can keep doing this for my own satisfaction, but I think the most value is when the topics are relevant and generate discussion. This is why I want suggestions on what people want to hear about. The below form allows anonymous submissions, providing an email is optional.
