ClearlyCrystal.net is where I, Crystal B. Shepeard, do my best to clarify the chaos of politics, current events, and this thing we call life. My passion for politics is not about expressing my opinion (though I have one – or several), it’s about helping readers make sense of the spin. After years of writing about the hot topics, I’ve learned one important thing: Don’t forget the nuance.
In the age of quick takes and punditry everything seems chaotic. It’s only in the lowered voices and between the well written lines that the nuance becomes clear. Even the most passionate debates can be explained – if you pay attention to the detail.
ClearlyCrystal.net is about clarifying the chaos – not to promote a worldview – but educate, inform, and maybe even entertain.
The thoughts here, like life, will be random. The topics, varied. I experience the world and share what I see and learn.
You can most often find me on Twitter @clearlycrystalb, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading.
