IT IS GETTING BETTER
When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.
you rock it, young feminist protesters. Fuck yeah, I am so proud of you.
Yes, they’re awesome.
But I think there is another part about this I like, too. Notice the burden of that pain is being shared — made lighter by women committed to being here and helping. They can’t fix it, of course but mutual support makes the burden lighter.
No wonder the patriarchy wants us in competition with each other…
Amazing what we can do together.

I used to think the physical momentos from sleep no more, our trinkets and masks and bloodstained hands, were my favorite things to take home with me. But I’ve come to realize that the best momentos are not the ones you can carry around your neck or in your pockets. The best ones burrow into your heart and make a home there. The best ones are the ones you can never take off or put away.

Erik Abbott-Main as the Porter
One of the most beautiful and heart-rending performances I’ve ever had the pleasure to witness. He has made Porter completely his own, and it’s fantastic. So glad I was convinced to go that Saturday.

n. the smallest measurable unit of human connection, typically exchanged between passing strangers—a flirtatious glance, a sympathetic nod, a shared laugh about some odd coincidence—moments that are fleeting and random but still contain powerful emotional nutrients that can alleviate the symptoms of feeling alone.
