Hello imaginary friends!
The world has gone a little unhinged this week. Or perhaps it always was, and we’re just a little more aware of it at the moment.
I saw this excellent tweet earlier this week from @bdell1014 which said simply “#AllLivesMatter is like going to the Dr with a broken arm & he says ‘All Bones Matter’ ok but right now let’s take care of the broken one.”
It’s hard to maintain perspective in a world wrecked with hate and violence and fear. It’s hard to know when to start when everything seems a little hopeless. I’ve tried to round-up a little happiness and hopefulness in the links below this week.
Links We Love
- Guardian Books did a great piece on Alters and creating the first transgender super hero.
- Mountain Lion kittens were discovered in the Santa Susana mountains in California, delivering some epically cute videos and squeakiness.
- I got obsessed with the Twitter/Tumblr Drunk Austen this week – #PrideAndPurrjudice was a favorite!
- Loved this roundup from the NewAfrican on African writers in genre fiction, an area where they typically get less press with American and European audiences.
