Cruel Optimism (3 of 4)

" This is not a time for assurance but for experiment—to have patience with failure, with trying things out, to try new forms of life that also might not work—which doesn’t make them worse than what’s there now. It is a time for using the impasse that we’re in to learn something about how to imagine better economies of intimacy and labor. "

Lauren Berlant (via wood s lot)

Relief only gets you so far, I suppose. Good courage, good heart.

It's also a time to play, to experiment.

Give it a year, and you'll be surprised how far you have come. Promise!
