This week has been a complete nightmare – do what you must in order to exercise self-care. For me, I’ve been engaging in peaceful protest, sending charitable donations, and escaping in the movies. I’ve updated the Oscar Predictions, so if that’s your kind of distraction, enjoy.
Art is one of our most powerful and effective tools for healing, outrage, and representing those who have been marginalized. I hope that with speaking up for the rights and safety of our fellow citizens and fighting oppression also comes with a renewed sense of how diverse art can open hearts and minds. We’ve not yet reached the time for healing, but art can still bring us together.
