brilliant - and beautiful!
a human “walk” through time, across the earth
it’s increasingly easy, to feel like the formerly reasonable expectations, of working hard, are now less and less likely to happen, as we descend further into dog-eat-dog.
so, the choice is between: a) get increasingly resentful; b) temper expectations - while continuing to fix this broken system
with piles of books across the place (and devices) I noticed that, depending which pile I find myself at, I’m reading both “The Midnight Kingdom” by Jared Yates Sexton [@JYSexton], and “How to Be an Antiracist”, by Ibram X. Kendi [@ibramxk] - concurrently.
and, each being seriously grounded in important - and suppressed - history, I find that they’re almost meant to be read together.
much learning - and much needed.
which reminds me, that I’ve also been meaning to read Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States”.
Wow: The Nib is sadly on the way out 😢 - but making all their mags available for free download!
(These folks are amazing - please consider tipping them!)
got my first pension check; nice. retiring, is the best (work-related) decision I ever made - LOVING it.
(BTW: kudos to Cox Auto, for continuing to offer a pension.)

ugh; a disappointing hatchett job - more so, since there are important questions to discuss. too bad the author seems to see nothing past their foregone conclusions. vtdigger.org/2023/01/0…
