Category Archives: Elsewhere

Elsewhere posts are what are often described as link round-up posts. Categorized, curated links to posts elsewhere with titles, brief descriptions, quotations, and sometimes, commentary. These are posts that I read and think others might find them interesting, possibly provocative, but worth the time and energy to read. They were in some ways why we started Floccinaucical.com in the first place; to curate and annotate posts that deserved some time, traffic and attention. The Elsewhere categories have changed and will likely continue to change with time, but books, language, history, art, and food are always present. Since the U.S. election of 2016, we have included a section regarding the antics of # 45. We hope soon to be able to stop including that section as it is soul-wearying.
