I’ve been reading two amazing books lately and just got to share them.
Real Queer America by Samantha Allen is a series of profiles of #LGBTQ heros living in red states. These folks are so inspiring. I cannot say enough good things or overstate how much they challenge me.
Second, in Braiding Sweetgrass Robin Wall Kimmerer shares such wisdom on life through her perspective as an indigenous botanist. They way she writes is stunningly beautiful. Almost daily I share a passage with a friend.
My small kids and I spent the night in a train depot. I love having these adventures with them, and they have been amazing. We’ve been stuck in train depots together before, and they just seem to rise to the occasion. As a parent I feel like I totally lucked out. (Our train is delayed since it’s been blocked by train that slipped off the tracks.)
