Welcome back, everybody!
I’m sure the mood this afternoon is more somber than last week’s and that’s understandable with Friday’s Supreme Court decision. I know Sarah is compiling a list of resources and actionable activities that should be going up soon (if not already). My focus is to give some lightness and distraction here if you need it.
I cried, had some cocktails and comforting food, and then took an edible with my partner for a cozy movie night. I’ve also been playing a lot of video games and finding catharsis in just talking and venting to friends.
If you’d like to share your own comforting plans, feel free!
Thanks to Miriam for sharing this with Sarah! It’s a look at historical romance covers and how they do or don’t reflect the fashions of their setting. Lots of costume design nerdery here!
Illumicrate is raffling off a stunning Bridgerton special collection to raise funds for National Network of Abortion Funds. There are also a couple other romance editions up for raffle. You can find them all here.
Kate Bush is having a resurgence following the latest season of Stranger Things and their usage of “Running Up That Hill.” Bush has been rather reclusive in her later years, but is thrilled to be discovered by a new audience.
PSA, Lady Genius.
The famously private singer #KateBush has given a rare interview in the wake of the resurgence of her 1985 song Running Up That Hill, and she couldn’t be happier to connect with a new generation of fans.https://t.co/Gb1YA53gHA
