This is my new monthly column in July’s ISSUE Magazine, which comes out today. 


A Contracted Life is intended as a place to explore the negative spaces in life — the things a person don’t, shouldn’t, wouldn’t, can’t do. A reflection of regrets, remorse and the remembered omissions, stopgaps and stumbles – that don’t necessarily detract from a full life. 


I write about the myth of how to do Europe right that I had been feeding myself for so long before I travelled, and all the ways I didn’t live up to those myths. Click here to read.
