We need some good right now — thoughts, ideas, actions and (actual) goods. Here are a few on our radar:
A Good Question
Is This Pandemic The End Of Perfection? "For all the paradigm shifts that we’re going to see in the aftermath of the pandemic...one of the biggest is going to be the acceptance that productivity does not always have to be our goal. And, perhaps especially for women, this feels quietly radical."
Some Good Leaders
“But what many women have demonstrated in this crisis is both truthfulness, which is needed in a pandemic, in terms of being honest about what we know and what we don’t know, and quick decision making. Their cities have benefited from actions taken early and decisively, even if imperfect.” (Glamour)
Three Artists On The Expansion of Work, Creativity and Caregiving In A Pandemic
"Pandemic life changed my relationship with my studio back to what it had once been, not somewhere of guilt and stolen time but a sanctuary where I need to be to be my full self, and consequently the best parent and partner as well."
Mixed Emotions: Kay Brown on Finding Her Place as a Multi-Racial Millennial
“I think I would be considered somewhat of a white passing standard, but it diminishes the fact that I am still half black”
A Good Perspective
"To me, that makes every day a do-over. I may not have had the courage, or frankly the desire, to voluntarily take time out from life and work to do what I’m doing now—try, and fail, and try again with my kids. Yet it’s the chance I’ve been given." (The Atlantic)
A Good Watch
A Good (Necessary, Actually) Idea
Forget Pancakes. Pay Mothers. "In our country, staying home to raise children is one of the most devastating financial decisions a woman can make. And without any sort of child care system in place, it’s often not a choice at all." (The New York Times)
