This is gorgeously articulated, and a needed reminder. Your past writing has always delivered Truth on a Platter, but recently I found I was getting nauseous just looking at it. How to remain hopeful and active within such a dispiriting system? Especially without support from other wide-awake people? Now I remember: stay curious! Stay open! Stand in the tiny slivers of light that break through! Wisdom cultivated can never be lost. Thank you, Caitlin, for bringing hope back into my day.
