flying through clouds of uncertainty on wings of existential dread
I thought I was done drawing the colouring book, but then I was rereading ‘His Dark Materials’, and so, you know, stuff happened. Just as well, I miscounted and needed this one to make it to 50.
Also, it’s Rodeo time in Houston (aka the one time of year that Houston looks a little bit like non-Texans think it does, except for all of the humidity and art and, y’know, brown folks), and I find myself wondering. Does any other state do Go —an day? Like, schoolkids here have Go Texan! day every year, where they’re encouraged to dress up like they’re on hee-haw and learn line dancing and such. Is there a Go Connecticut! day? Go Maryland!? Also, do y’all spend at least one year studing the specific history of your state in school? I definitely spent at least one year, maybe more, on Texas history; is that a thing in, say, Rhode Island?
And finally, I don’t think I’ve plugged the International Rescue Committee yet. Obviously they’re looking for donations, but they also list volunteer opportunites, as well as a ton of articles that make great reading/sharing.
