In this summer of 2020, viva la revolución!

And in this February of 2021, M4A is dead, kids are still in cages, cops are still shooting people of color, deportations continue, we have less than seven years before the planet is irrevocably on its way to mass extinction and uninhabitability for humans. We wanted revolution and got Biden, the most right-wing Democrat to serve as president since the New Deal.

Some fave quotes (besides every word Jane Austen wrote):

"Love is a world of many Spaynes" -- James I

"Something real, cool, and solid lies before you" -- Charlotte Bronte

"A bride with a cold in her head is the saddest of spectacles" -- Louisa May Alcott (civil war nurse, among other things)

"'No' is the wildest word we consign to language" -- Emily Dickinson

"the other the" -- James Joyce

"The neighbors trust me with their children every time they need to go out. The idea of trusting your children to a surrealist must be encouraged." -- Anais Nin

"'I love you' needs my own language" -- Sylvia Plath

"language is never innocent" -- Roland Barthes

"every 'I' is a fiction finally" -- Derek Walcott

"Love is the time and space in which "I" assumes the right to be extraordinary" -- Julia Kristeva

"we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We've been taught that silence would save us, but it won't " -- Audre Lorde

"how to let go of the past, how to change and lose with grace, how to keep going in the face of overwhelming suffering. It shouldn't be easy." -- Tony Kushner

The dreams of the Left
are always beautiful.
The imagining of a better world
the damnation of the present one.
This faith,
this luminescent anger,
these alone
are worthy of being called human -- Tony Kushner

"Justice precedes beauty. Without justice, beauty is impossible, an obscenity" -- Tony Kushner

"some worlds are built on a fault line of pain, held up by nightmares. Don't lament when those worlds fall. Rage that they were built doomed in the first place" -- N. K. Jemisin

"Behind every crazy woman is a man sitting very quietly, saying, 'What? I'm not doing anything.'" -- Jade Sharma

"Write a poem that will keep you out the grave" -- Jonah Mixon-Webster

"rich people cannot have the right to combust others to death." -- Andreas Malm

La mia bibliotecaThese are most of the books I actually have; if I started logging wishlisted or discarded books it'd be chaos. I'm also not listing books that sit right beside mine but belong more to my partner than to me. (OK, I've cheated & included a few . . .)
