Quoted @nkjemisin

I keep writing tweets and then deleting them. Struggling to think of what to say, aware that I don't need to say anything, mostly trying to just elevate people saying what I'm feeling instead. I'm just so tired.

This thread about how to become a storyteller in these difficult times. Thank you @nkjemisin

I am so happy to see my grandma has gone viral. She deserves this. I will never forget you or the lessons you taught me, Sally Rowley.

As @realDonaldTrump golfs this Memorial Day weekend while Americans continue to die due to his failed leadership, here’s a photo of a monument he placed along the Potomac at his VA golf course, which is as fake as his Putin installed presidency.

This battle never happened.

Preaching to the converted: memorialed lies become history. This is the extent to which Trump lies.

For decades, people in the climate world have devoted *enormous* effort to persuading conservative climate skeptics -- countless hours of argument, reams of academic research. It was mostly wasted effort. Here's the closest I came to a final word on it.

Took my son to find one of the rarest flowers in the world: a desert orchid that blooms in the Arizona borderlands among white oaks, cholla cactus and prickly pear. This is the Coleman’s coral root. Only two hundred individuals known to exist on the planet. We saw 17.

Quoted @JuliaDavisNews

“Models show that if 80 percent of people wear masks that are 60 percent effective, easily achievable with cloth, we can get to an effective R0 of less than one. That’s enough to halt the spread of the disease.”

Everyone should read this article if you have ANY questions about wearing masks. It's well written and understandable and makes clear the benefits of the practice.

TUESDAY. Joy is what we need and what may save us. But in this age of unmitigated fuckery, it's not enough merely to find it or cultivate it. You must steal it. Thieve it from the clutches of joy-killers and misery wizards. IT'S TIME FOR A JOY HEIST, MOTHERFUCKERS, get in the van
