Thanks so much for this one, Sarai. I've been thinking a lot, too, about this idea of collective madness, but kind of in negative sense. That the world is so vast and crazy and there are so many enormous problems we aren't addressing on a daily basis, while I obsess about silly things like making sure my counter is always clean. Very anxiety inducing, because it makes me feel like not only can't I handle my own little problems but I am also powerless to the whole world's. Your perspective is much healthier, reminding me that, alongside the ugly we have so much beauty in this world to admire and enjoy, and that is worthy of so much more of our attention.
I've been reading your newsletter since last year; I signed up for it almost on accident. I look forward to receiving it every week as it always brings me something to appreciate and something to think about. It can be weirdly lonely out here on the internet but your words are reaching people. Thank you so much!
Thank you for sharing your wisdom and for sharing these awesome articles!
