‘It is a miracle I am sitting here typing these words. I should by all rights be dead. But mine is a different apocalypse: personal, not systemic (…) The situation is dire: COVID-19, Trump, climate change, late-stage capitalism. Warnings about all four should be heeded. But so, too, should offers of help. (…) We, the lucky, can wake up each day and break the loop in some small way. We will do this for as many days in a row as we can. And the project of living will continue on until it can’t anymore.’
— Rebekah Frumkin, The Optimist’s Apocalypse
