But I certainly don't wish to abandon my art and writing entirely!
So this week I began to settle into some new rhythms, allocating time for blogging, GioSafari, and some other creative ideas that have been on the back burner for years.
Two new entries emerged for the Privilege blog, both on themes of feminism, sexism, and patriarchy. The first excerpts a commentary by visionary feminist thinker and writer bell hooks on the blockbuster pseudo-feminist book Lean In, by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. The second highlights cases of sexual harassment and describes how men can use their privilege to subvert abusive patriarchal structures by challenge sexist attitudes and behavior.
On the Matt 6:24 blog, I shared the story of the Landfill Harmonic Orchestra, a musical ensemble based in Paraguay whose classical instruments were constructed using trash out of landfills.
There's a ton more a-brewing in this brain of mine, so stay tuned for much much more!
