I love photography and so I really love the idea of Instagram, but it’s come a long way since it was introduced in 2010. Now it’s filled with influencers, ads, and Twitter screenshots (my god, whyyy). The latest addition just adds to the awful: a goddamn shopping option. (Bloomberg)

How does one come to own a business that cleans up after death, decay, and disaster? Sarah Krasnostein’s biography of Sandra Pankhurst, The Trauma Cleaner is complicated and, well, traumatic. Bea Pants said, "even if I didn’t particularly like Sandra, by the end of the book I understood and admired her. Her continued existence and success is a giant middle finger to every person who inflicted pain on her in her life." (Cannonball Read 11)

A year ago I was waitressing in a restaurant while organizing my community. In a time and place where we had been burned by so many politicians, and had grown deservedly cynical of the sad, familiar cycle of campaign promises and governance excuses, I was asking them, just once, to believe. . It was really hard, because how do you make that case? How to ask someone whose trust has been violated over and over to believe you? To believe in the movement for justice and economic dignity? . You show up. You give unconditionally. You show up when no one is looking and the cameras are off. You offer support when it’s risky, but necessary. You do it over and over again, without a need for recognition or expectation that you are “owed” something for doing the right thing. You just… engage in the act of loving your community. . Never in my wildest dreams did I think that those late nights on the 6 & 7 trains would lead to this. All this attention gives me a lot of anxiety (my staff fought to get me to agree to this cover, as I was arguing against it), and still doesn’t feel quite real, which maybe is why I remain comfortable taking risks, which maybe is a good thing. . I believe in an America where all things are possible. Where a basic, dignified life isn’t a dream, but a norm. . That’s why I got up then, and it’s why I get up now. Because my story shouldn’t be a rare one. Because our collective potential as a nation can be unlocked when we’re not so concerned about how we’re going to secure our most basic needs, like a doctor’s visit or an actually affordable apartment.
