What’s New at ArtsEtc: IndyList, Reviews, Blogs, Poetry & More
How’re we doing these days? It’s a fair question, now we’re nearing the end of 2020 with a possibly brighter yet no less troubled 2021 at the gates.
There are many questions about the efficacy of our political systems.
So much of life is a matter of perspective. Is she tall or he small? Is the cup half-empty or half-full? Is the enemy of my enemy really my friend?
Honestly, I don’t know. What I do believe is that no situation is as hopeless as it seems. Not our deadlines. Not this pandemic. Not the outcome of any elections, at home or abroad.
Sometimes, it calls for staring down a challenge and seeing ourselves as far from helpless in our ability to choose. It’s about being inspired to overcome somehow or, if we can still manage it, to inspire others in turn.
Here’s how we at ArtsEtc have been doing of late:
