How Relationships Refine Our Truths: Adrienne Rich on the Dignity of Love

What a beautiful sentiment:

An honorable human relationship — that is, one in which two people have the right to use the word “love” — is a process, delicate, violent, often terrifying to both persons involved, a process of refining the truths they can tell each other.

It is important to do this because it breaks down human self-delusion and isolation.

It is important to do this because in doing so we do justice to our own complexity.

It is important to do this because we can count on so few people to go that hard way with us.

Wildfires Are Putting Giant Sequoias at Existential Risk

Saw coverage of this on the NBC news yesterday. Here's hoping that firefighters can get the blaze under control and we don't lose the amazing trees that have seen so much history over their lives.

On The Uber Files

Just like the HBO show, I've largely avoided the Uber Files. The company is, without any doubt in my mind, horribly unethical and did anything they could to force the change that enabled their business. I don't need to read the files to know that. I was honestly angry that an HBO show got made about the company and its founder.

Now, with my moral grandstanding out of the way. I was also a loyal customer as the easiest way to ride to and from the airport. Granted, in this new era, it is unlikely I go back to using them. I'll either hire a driver directly from a local business, or use a taxi service.
