ACTION: WRITE A LOVE LETTER
The practice of love offers no place of safety. We risk loss, hurt, pain. We risk being acted upon by forces outside our control— bell hooks

Love is a practice. We know it more when we spend more time with it. It grows on and in us and our understanding of it deepens. It is not a sentimental force. It is a fierce, life-saving, creative to the core force that is dumbed down by describing it in sentimental terms or thinking that weaponizing it builds it up. This is an invitation, a call to action, a reminder, or a sultry whisper in your ear. As we undergo big change as a people and a world. How do you let love guide your action? How do you share it? Know it? Foster it?—Chelsea Wills
