My vacation was awesome (see above). The last two weeks of news–not so much.

I’ve been thinking about this bit from Lord of the Rings:

Frodo: “I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.”

Gandalf: “So do all who live to see such times but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”

I’ve been reading and rereading one of Austin Kleon’s posts from this week, Knitting at the End of the World, which lead me to this poem by Bertolt Brecht:

In the dark times
Will there also be singing?
Yes, there will also be singing
About the dark times.

These are dark times and getting darker. Let’s sing together.

If you’re in crisis, please reach out and ask for help. We need you.

I feel like we’re all sort of fumbling in the fog, trying to find out way out of what is going to be the worst mass disabling event of our lifetimes–and as I’ve found out over the past almost-four years, there is no way out, there is only through and there is no end. Therefore, I give you a few waypoints that may help you on your journey.
