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

A Good Read & Listen 

Writer Madeline Miller on myth, nostalgia and how power corrupts: "It’s the pain you feel when you miss home. And I think we’ve all felt that way. We’ve all had those moments where we feel lost on the waves and surrounded by monsters and wishing for safe harbor. I just see so many universal human experiences. So it speaks down through the centuries."

A Good Habit

The big may seem overwhelming right now, so scale back. Enter the micro-habit. A bit of calm in the chaos right now.

A Good Explainer

Why COVID-19 affects kids and adults so differently

A Good Watch

These 10 short documentaries all celebrate motherhood, in all her many nuances. 

A Good Party 

Love Will Not Be Canceled: A stunning stoop wedding and virtual reception block-party style that understandably made the rounds this weekend.  

A Good Routine
