Welcome back, I hope you had time for a break and spent some of it doing absolutely nothing.

It’s been a three week break and some of you have signed up during that time—perhaps through Letterlist, who had kind words recently—so if you aren’t sure why you’re getting this newsletter; I’m Patrick Tanguay and this is Sentiers, a weekly newsletter to feed your curiosity & make better sense of the world, you can click here to read up on me, these emails and the topics covered (there’s also a full archive). If it’s not to your liking, there’s an unsubscribe link at the bottom of this issue, no hard feelings.
