  • capitalism

    I’ve been working too much but realized how much I love saying, “I’ve been working too much.” And also actually really enjoy working too much because as much as I berate it- I fucking love capitalism. Capitalism is my lived value. I can say how much it fucks everything over (it does.) How it destroys […]

  • thomas the train

    This past week I found myself reading to my nephews. Their book selection happened to be Thomas the Train. I have questions. The core value of the story (and of a couple kids books that I can think of off the top of my head) is busyness. Thomas the Train is highly encouraged to stay […]

  • bodies

    I love all of Sonya Renee Taylor’s work, but am especially thinking about these questions she poses in her book, The Body is not an apology: “Why are we constantly apologizing for the space we inhabit? What if we all understood the inherent vastness of our humanity and therefore occupied the world without apology? What […]

  • dignity

    “…I think part of what she is getting at is this: dignity is not based on scarcity. And dignity is something that is very hard to claim for yourself and particularly easy to offer to someone else. And if people are worried about beauty in the sense of high heels or in the sense of, […]

  • value

    I do not like the word value. Mostly because of its connotations. “Value menu” is one. (which just feels like such a weird name for the cheap part of the menu.) But also because people in leadership positions saying they want to add “value” to people’s lives as a way of guising the real goal […]
