A very brief Wednesday Week at least partly because I forgot Tuesday Poem yesterday.
For a very long time I’ve been reading the political and social musings of a friend of mine and just nodding like one of those bobble-headed dogs – frequently without even interacting with her, because on the rare occasion I have something to say it tends to be, rather than a thoughtful, intelligent comment on the world, incoherent feelings liberally sprinkled with profanity. This doesn’t exactly contribute to public discourse, so, other than wondering whether she’d mind if I just printed off her words and pasted them up everywhere I go, I tend to just sit back and agree silently and wish everyone could read her.
Well, now you all can. I really encourage everyone to read Hazel Parson. She’s smart, she’s thoughtful, and she lays it all out in a very clear, consistent manner. She is, in short, the perfect thing to read after you’ve accidentally spent five minutes reading the Stuff comments and need to feel like there’s still good in the world.
