long 18th C rant 

“Understory”
by Mark Nepo

I’ve been watching stars
rely on the darkness they
resist. And fish struggle with
and against the current. And
hawks glide faster when their
wings don’t move.

Still I keep retelling what
happens till it comes out
the way I want.

The new Julien Baker songs (Red Door and Conversation Piece) are now two of my favourites by her (and that's saying a lot). She's incredible.

Get well soon, @mike 🕯️ Glad to hear you're on the mend. You've been such a gift in my own journey of science and faith, and I am thankful for your kindness, acceptance, and willingness to ask the hard questions and go wherever it may lead. I hope we can be equally supportive of you as you heal, and as you figure out what changes you need to make in order for things to be less stressful. I honestly can't imagine how you and @vishnu do all that you do. Know that you are not taken for granted. 💛

Thankful for Rachel Held Evans, and grieving her passing. She showed me how to face my questions and doubts head-on, and to honour them as sacred, too. Hers was a voice that was wise, gracious, and honest, when that was (and is still) so needed. We miss you already, Rachel. 🕯️

Deconstruction, religion, maintaining relationships

i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?

it answered
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere
