Hi.

Stuff We Like :: 9.28.18

I’m not sure how to follow politics and find the middle way anymore — and I know that’s a problem that reflects a whole lot of privilege, but I feel perpetually pushed between anger and depression when I read the news these days. I’ve been reading so much about the civil rights movement lately, looking for guidance in how to navigate inhuman situations without losing your humanity. That helps a little. Taking small breaks when I don’t follow the news helps, too. I read a lot of poetry, and that helps, sometimes. The thing that helps the most is my students, who believe in a better world so much that I really think they will make one. But there are many hard days, and I find it especially hard to talk to my kids about all the things that are happening because I know I lack wisdom and peace about so much of this.

THE LINKS I LIKED

WHAT I’M READING AND WATCHING

  • The Good Place is back!

  • Student papers comparing Hobbes and Locke — apparently I am not the only one saddened by the state of the world because Hobbes is definitely coming out ahead this semester.

  • I have a big stack of books on my nightstand, but they are gathering dust at the moment — I have entered the “wait, what day is it?” phase of the fall term.
