"During my first post-lockdown massage we had the requisite chit chat about our lockdown experiences. He gushed: ‘Oh man. It was so great. Every day I woke up, drank coffee, read, rode my bike…’ This did sound pretty great. But it was nothing like my own, anxiety-ridden ordeal.

"We didn't quite make it
But we didn't quite break it
It's easy to walk away
And it's just as easy to stay

Both sides have their merits
But in any marraige
You gotta keep showing up - that's the work
You gotta keep showing up"

"This is why I strongly oppose the ways aesthetic is dismissed as superficial because this - often sexist - trivialization actually speaks to a missed opportunity to extend the art itself, and diminishes the work involved in creative direction."

She did it again... such a thoughtful and inspiring read. In this book, Vivek talks more about how humanity can change for the better, specifically, how we can be better during a pandemic. There is no push for bettering ourselves or for increased productivity, but simply to centre and focus love and care in everything we do. I love this book, I will read everything Vivek writes.
