1. Mantra because this year has been really weird, right?! Make me available for work.To the witches and the wolves, the stardust, and the gods, the universe at large. This is how I start my day. Make me available for work. As a mother, partner, artist, author, activist, friend. Make me available for work. On the days when it all feels like too much and I don't feel so useful. Make me available for work. To be grateful to those who have created opportunity for me and so that I can hold that space open for others. Make me available for work. To family, blood and chosen, let's continue to lift each other up so we can be available for work. There is much to be done. And I love that. And I love you.
2. Read Laura McGann's piece on Vox:
"Donald Trump is trying to gaslight us on E. Jean Carroll’s account of rape." It's not anything new or surprising, but a good concise reminder of exactly how serial predators get away with shit.
3. Listen to Lin Manuel Miranda on Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend. They geek out about the Queen/Bowie song Under Pressure for a good 5 minutes, it's great.
