Still we persist

 

Feeling the chill of mid November’s coastal winds with bivouac offices now along the seaside, here is our take on what has happened, is happening now, and what will continue to happen. Indeed, still we persist. Welcome to the .018th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
