A Published Essay

"Limbs" by Noah Zinsmeister


I'm very excited to shamelessly announce and direct you to an essay I wrote that was just published by MercatorNet. Mercator is an online magazine that covers a range of ethical, political, social, and cultural issues, which its editors and writers try always to reframe in terms of "human dignity". I love this goal and purpose and am thrilled to be a part of it in my own small way.

My piece was published here on MercatorNet's Tiger Print blog, which is specifically aimed at young adults and covers modern culture and ideas and style.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy it!


p.s. Don't you love this photo my little brother took? I couldn't resist posting it today, a day that really feels like fall.

    Your brother really is quite a photographer. Wow, are the skies really that blue where you live?

    2. Thank you Renee! I'm so happy you enjoyed it, and yes--growing up without a TV was a wonderful thing. My husband and I still don't have one, although we will probably get one someday just to watch ND games :) Even then, we've agreed that it won't be in our living room!

    3. We recently bought a beautiful armoire to hide our TV, and I couldn't be happier with that decision. I love that it's no longer a focal point.
