to listen to ernie graham when already feeling sad.

(beautiful sad things: new babies in the world made by loving couples; disconnection; outkast; being alone; being together)

on the flip side:

to strain after innovation

Posted: July 16th, 2016 | No Comments »

To strain after innovation, to worry about being ‘on the cutting edge’—a phrase I hate—reflects concern for a place in history or for one’s career rather than for the authenticity of one’s own painting.

roxane gay’s devastating piece, “Alton Sterling and When Black Lives Stop Mattering”:

I don’t know where we go from here because those of us who recognize the injustice are not the problem. Law enforcement, militarized and indifferent to black lives, is the problem. Law enforcement that sees black people as criminals rather than human beings with full and deserving lives is the problem. A justice system that rarely prosecutes or convicts police officers who kill innocent people in the line of duty is the problem. That this happens so often that resignation or apathy are reasonable responses is the problem.

It’s overwhelming to see what we are up against, to live in a world where too many people have their fingers on the triggers of guns aimed directly at black people. I don’t know what to do anymore. I don’t know how to allow myself to feel grief and outrage while also thinking about change. I don’t know how to believe change is possible when there is so much evidence to the contrary. I don’t know how to feel that my life matters when there is so much evidence to the contrary.

in other devastating news, a collection of videos showing the mistreatment of blacks at the hands of police, and the poem “38” by layli long soldier.

olivia munn talking to the cut:

How I eat when I’m alone: Like a child who has finally grown up and can do whatever she wants. It’s horrible. I wake up, maybe eat something, maybe not. I eat chips, sandwiches, and most likely ramen.
