Discussion Thread: How Are You?

It was extremely valuable to have some time off, which I needed desperately, but of course coming back to this particular daily grind is very hard.

I've never been someone who can completely tune out, and I didn't — not to U.S. politics, and not to the injustices I saw around me every day, even when I wasn't writing about them — but I am nonetheless filled with gratitude to have had some time of meaningfully decreased anxiety.

I know some of y'all are having a rough time at the moment, either with politics or personal stuff, or both, so here is a space to confess and commiserate, if you need it. I wish there were more that I could do than provide this space. ♥

How are you?
