Don't despair. Dissent.
I like High Country News. "High Country" means land above the foothills but below the timberline. "Mountainous areas" and "elevated expanses." Kind of a great title for a magazine. When I opened the latest edition, there in large, bold typeface was the phrase "Don't despair, Dissent." "...even in the toughest moments, we can look to the people doing good, hard work, and be inspired by them." I hope you find some time to simmer in solidarity and that hope, love, and strength come to you especially before the next weekday plunge. To honor my creative self the definition is not limited to activism outside of my home place. It includes reading. Hoping for a good read today. Thanks ghost_light for the persistent prodding and inspiration and love.
