The Good Stuff

Every Monday we'll be sharing the good stuff with you.

Evelyn's Legs by Deb Achak 

We need some good right now — thoughts, ideas, actions and (actual) goods. Here are a few on our radar:

A Good (Heartbreaking) Question

Read this in the (paper Sunday edition!) Times over the weekend, making me think about career and craft survival, and...well, everything: My Restaurant Was My Life For 20 Years. Does The World Need It Anymore?

A Good View

Try a virtual train ride (13 to choose from, from around the world!) to calm the mind and for a change of...computer scenery. 

A Good Leader

"Her leadership style is one of empathy in a crisis that tempts people to fend for themselves. Her messages are clear, consistent, and somehow simultaneously sobering and soothing. And her approach isn’t just resonating with her people on an emotional level. It is also working remarkably well." (The Atlantic)

"We’re both intentional about centering our parenting around justice and creativity and are also big believers in always being a work in progress."

A Good Read

"And Tori Amos knows about resilience. It’s a theme of her new book, Resistance: A Songwriter’s Story of Hope, Change, and Courage...It is in part an extensive critique of patriarchal power built on personal experience, the many stories she’s heard from her fans over the years, and her impressive command of geopolitics." (Lit Hub)

A Good Print

Two prints from photographer, mother and friend of The Fold, Deb Achak,  (you can see Evelyn's Legs featured above) are being offered at a special size and price "in acknowledgment of all of the moms of quarantine doing double duty."

A Good Gift

Give greens to mom—or anyone who needs a pick-me-up—this year. May suggest the humble plant, grown and ready to go? Try one of these for healthy, deliver-to-your-door beauty: Bloomscape, The Sill, or call your local nursery!

Dear Taurus: Sometimes disagreement brings out the worst in people, but this month it is the impetus for real change - not because you engage in the head-butting but because it motivates you to actually do something about what's causing it.
