A glimpse of hope

Hi! A small reminder that you can forward this newsletter to a friend, if you feel like it.

Text: This Week
Text: This Week
I will admit, it’s been a strange year to begin writing to you all on a weekly basis. Across each week, my emotions oscillate from despondent and bummed out, to hopeful or at least reminded of how grateful I should feel. I won’t name all of the things going on in the world right now, because I know, you know.
Anyways, I hope you can forgive this small-ish pause in programming. This week is simply about hope. I suppose I could talk about how, as designers, we often approach existing services or systems with the belief that we can improve things, so they work better for people and/or for the planet. We bring energy, conversation, tools, understanding, and usually, we bring hope.
I think there are parallels to be drawn, or at the very least, maybe there’s something we can learn from our design practices, a glimpse of hope or a framework for moving forward. The following readings made me feel lighter. I hope they do the same for you.
Text: “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” Arundhati Roy.

Loose ends | A podcast: Hope is a Discipline, an event: Restorative Design Conference, a website: potluck.space, and an interview: with Jia Tolentino, on hope.
If you’re eligible to vote in the US, I probably don’t need to remind you of the importance of these next few weeks. This guide will help you get clear on your state’s voting rules and key dates. Hugs from my corner of the internet!
