Truth: Studio Notes #53
By Studio Miranda  • Issue #53 • View online
Sometimes, to sort out a family fight, I start a “game” I call One True Thing. Everybody gets to say one thing, just one, that they believe is true, and then the next person goes. Like: “I felt like you were attacking me.” And then, “I am really sorry for that, but I don’t understand why you got so upset.” And so on. I know I sound like a really annoying marriage counsellor or something but it works. You have to focus on the essentials, your most important feeling, and deal with one thing at a time.
Here’s my One True Thing today: I am totally wrung out. It’s been a really intense week for me both in parenting and in work, and also, there is this.

This is my newest release, Mokita. Mokita means “the truth that everybody knows but nobody talks about”, and the truth in question is mental illness. In particular, my mother’s. I’ve explained it all on the blog, and forgive me, but I’m going to have to send you over there because like I say: Wrung. Out.
This is a fundraising pattern: 100% of proceeds will go to Mind, which is doing excellent work in not just supporting people with mental illness, but in opening up the conversation around it. I’m not doing a general launch discount but as a reader, you can get 20% off with the code ENDTHESTIGMA.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for your support. And thank you for being patient with me – I’ll have your usual juicy newsletter next month, but for now, there is just this one thing.
Did you enjoy this issue?
