      Time away from what you love most always makes you better at loving

      I keep rereading that line.

      “In order to “write about motherhood” one needs the room of one’s own we’ve heard so much about. And most people, some of them with thoughts yet unthinkable, simply do not have the room or the time.” Thoughts yet unthinkable is a way I remember my own experience of early motherhood. So many new and profound experiences and no time to process them. Running between day care pick ups and work there was no space for reflection. Every mother and her children deserve that.

      Great writing in Roxanne Gay’s new pub.

      This is a somewhat saturated topic area (a writer writes about writing on the internet) but still worth reading. It really is messed up what some people have to put up with online, especially outspoken women and POC.

      I love how clearly and effectively the writer diagnoses the problem: Nuance is missing. Context. Deep reading. Slowing down.
