Hello, friends. It’s the sickness season and I’ve lost 5 out of my last 6 work days to children’s illnesses. Then, yesterday, I heard my 7yo say to his sister, “I’m going to my secret studio to get some work done.”
HELLO, UNIVERSE. I’LL HAVE WHAT HE’S HAVING!
So this week, I’m leaving you with “What Goes Through Your Mind: On Nice Parties and Casual Racism” by Nicole Chung (whom I believe was formerly known as Nicole Soojung Callahan?) of The Toast. I’ve been thinking about ever since I first read it a couple of weeks ago. Such casual, clueless racism is something I contend with on a regular basis and still haven’t found a satisfying or consistent way to deal with it. But I remain optimistic, nonetheless. Most of the time, anyway.
Have a lovely week, and I’ll be back next Wednesday.
