Hold on dearly to your memories of life in the before times. Things weren't perfect then, and they never will be. But for most people, they were better than what we'll be staring down soon. And a better world is possible. We just all need something to hold on to in the mean time.

@shoeberto I believe the greatest gift of my brain chemistry is my ability to remember a lot of my life to surprisingly detail. It’s a gift because I can remember what the world “was” versus what it is and what it’s becoming. Conversely, it makes me sad to remember what was and see what’s coming.


@machias same, pretty much. That, combined with a fairly active study of history, makes for a tough combination sometimes. But it also feels good to be clear-eyed about the whole thing.
