I’ve spent most of this week playing music, lighting candles, and thinking about Breonna. This scene as I walked around my neighborhood affirmed that loop in my head. It’s been busy and slow and I even finished a book! Clouds hang low above the city, and I’m taking it as a sign to let my body cave into my apartment a bit. I’m also deciding between purchasing a new book or picking up a book I purchased (but haven’t read) from my own shelf. What have you been reading lately?
Here’s what inspired me this week:
“This issue is not about one incident. It is cultural. It is a culture of lack of impunity, of accepting of violence and violent language against women and an entire structure of power that supports that,”
Another pair, but green. Every. single. summer.
P.S Are you signed up for the newsletter? In short, it’s a love letter from me to you, in the form of an essay. It’s always free, but you can give $5 a month as a “Care As Community” member, to help sustain the work. I’m sending one out Saturday morning.
I hope you have an amazing weekend!
