Today’s Open thread is hosted by this pair of otters, snapped at the Edinburgh Zoo by Hamish Irvine.
Please feel free to use this thread to natter about anything your heart desires. Is there anything great happening in your life? Anything you want to get off your chest? Reading a good book (or a bad one)? Anything in the news that you’d like to discuss? What have you created lately? Commiserations, felicitations, temptations, contemplations, speculations?
You might all like this blog post by one of my colleagues. It is a letter to her non-black friends about why she blogs about her hair. She does an amazing job of explaining intersectionaly, how colonialism is internalised and plays out on the body and about the ahistorical nature of easy mainstream privilege and prejudice.
Plus she has great hair.
That is an excellent blog Pen, that post should go straight to the DUFC too.
