Things That Give Me Hope #1
Things That Give Me Hope #1:
Finding this beautiful children's book in the mail from Oakland author and badass illustrator Robert Liu-Trujillo last week amidst vast disappointment about the state of the world. Reading it to my boy as he sits on my lap and remembering how his little open mind is such a sponge for goodness right now. Recommitting to raising him aware that his reality is only one of many in the world and that the hard important holy work of his life as a human being is to see the divinity in every single fucking living creature and, knowing that, to celebrate and fight for and lift one another up. 💪
Read it, buy it, gift it for the holidays instead of some plastic shit.
Children's books are one of the few things giving me hope in this bleak moment.
