Hold Your Love

“The right person will know how to hold your love. The right person will choose you just as deeply as you choose them. You will not have to quiet the way you care, you will never feel like you are too much. You will not have to beg for the love you deserve. One day, you will be met where you are. One day, you will be someone’s favorite thing, and you will not be confused you will not feel like you are fighting for someone who isn’t fighting for you. One day, you will understand that it never mattered how tightly you held on to the wrong people, how intensely you tried, because the right people were always going to find you. The right people were always going to stay.”

The Best Way To Answer “So What Do You Do?”

You Are What You Love

“You are what you love, not what loves you. ”
― Charlie Kaufman

HandsOn Animal Gloves

I didn’t enjoy brushing my dog with a regular dog brush. I started digging around on the internet hoping someone invented something better: HandsOn Animal Gloves. My dog LOVES when I brush her with these! (Yes, they look hideous.)

I totally want a pair of these baggy alphabet pants in my size. Put them on your little ones!

The American Scam

“Everyone knows how productive you can be when you’re avoiding something. We are currently experiencing the civilizational equivalent of that anxiety you feel when you have something due the next day that you haven’t even started thinking about and yet still you sit there, helplessly watching whole seasons of mediocre TV or compulsively clicking through quintillions of memes even as your brain screams at you — the same way we scream at our politicians about guns and abortion and climate change — to do something.”

It’s Time to Stop Living the American Scam, by Tim Kreider

The Last Human

Kevin Kelly Tweeted about this short animation. Well worth a watch.

Feeling Nameless Feelings

“Consider that collectively, we are in a place where many of us are feeling nameless feelings right now. It is possible that years down the line, we may have to create new words to describe what we were feeling in this space. Some of the words we use to describe what we’re experiencing right now just might not feel like enough… and maybe, that’s okay… because we have never been here before. This is all brand new, and maybe, in time, the words will need to be new, too.

Perhaps, feeling what you need to feel is a process… and finding the language for those feelings is a process, too.”

Morgan Haper Nichols

Link Pack

I am crushed by the rulings of the Supreme Court this week. Especially the overturning of Roe vs Wade. No, we are not ok. What can you do?

You in Action

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open…”
Martha Graham

My super-smart developer friend John told me about One Time Secret. It helps you keep sensitive info out of your email and chat logs. Helpful!

PS: Apparently you can send one-way secret messages through Slack as well.
