essay: Why do weeds exist? And what you should do about putting them in your compost (Cass Marketos/The Rot). “You can, indeed, put weeds in your compost—not only because ‘weeds’ are (frankly) somewhat imaginary, and not only because ‘weeds,’ like any other organic material, will biodegrade efficiently in the correct conditions, but because ‘weeds’ are simply not going to kill you.”

essay: The Red Thread of Loss and The Weaving of Something Worthy (Tad Hargrave/On Culture Making). Beautiful. “Grief is not a passport to your normal existence.
