Struggling to Feel Human in These Times

In parallel with this deep change in myself, I keep looking into the shadowy future of planetary-scale climate catastrophe and the harms arising from the political polarizations sparking violence and bigotry among different ideological camps at home and abroad. My eyes wide open to the history of poverty and inequality, knowing how systemic corruption was created by design to produce outcomes like these for the hoarding of wealth and powerby a tiny few.

I look down at my wife’s belly and think about how important it is to hold the ambivalence of sobriety and fear alongside inspiration and joy. This paradox is the routine existence of every person alive today.
