What's Working: vol 15
curated links + monthly community sharing space
My dear reader.
A small change:
Our What’s Working round-up for paid subscribers is moving from end-of-month to mid-month, to create a little more space between my two non-essay offerings here at Wild Letters — this column and the Rose Thorn Bud podcast. Everything else remains the same, and I’ll be back in your inbox next Monday with a new essay about the yardsticks (some helpful, some not) that we use to measure our lives.
Thank you so much for being here with me!
Reading, Watching, Listening
The first thing I read today was this in-depth essay byfilled with historical pointers and clarifications about Palestinian Liberation, and it was enormously helpful for me. I am about to read it again a second time, more slowly.
“In the face of discomfort and not knowing what to say or what to do it is so easy to freeze and do nothing. There is also something valuable in not being urgent, but these are urgent times.” -shares additional resources for learning and toolkits for immediate actions to take in support of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
Topic switch, but: a second piece from Mar that resonated hugely with me was this one, on their decision to quit Instagram.
Leaving social media is something I talked about recently as well, in this conversation with Amelia Hruby for her wonderful podcast, Off The Grid.
