I'll admit, I've had some trouble closing my social media, putting own my phone, and looking away from all of the scary. Part of it for me, I think, is not that I'm looking for the terrible, but for the collective silver lining that always seems to emerge among us when we are at our most vulnerable.
Here's a quick post on some of that goodness I've come across today:
1. COSTURA CREATIVE VIRTUAL POETRY READINGS
If you dig living poets and you enjoyed José Olivarez & Keegan Lester's reading at school (shout out José & Keegan!), then consider tuning in for to one of these virtual readings. I now get to attend a poetry reading for my b-day. Quarantine problems solved!

2. SENTROCK DIGITAL DOWNLOAD COLORING BOOK
Speaking of José Olivarez, remember the beautiful cover of Citizen Illegal? Sentrock, a Chicago-based street artist, did the cover art, and now he's released this amazing Digital download coloring book! GOODNESS.
