This crowd-sourced list of uplifting, life-affirming songs had me mentally compiling my own list, and as I read along I found some of those I was thinking about mentioned downthread of Amanda Palmer’s request:

Change Is Gonna Come and Redemption Song mentioned several times.
Oh what the heck, I’ll just put this here:

Trump’s “Joseph Goebbels” gets smacked down:

A federal judge has ruled against {Michael Pack] the head of the agency that runs the Voice of America and other U.S.-funded news outlets who was accused of trying to turn it into a propaganda vehicle to promote President Donald Trump’s agenda. Pack, a conservative filmmaker, Trump ally and onetime associate of former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon, made no secret of his intent to shake up the agency after taking over in June.

This is awesome! So much diversity!
I wish we would do this everywhere. Between this and the more sensible culvert styles, we could live more easily with our wild friends.
So glad they included the trail cam to help people appreciate this!

Transformative. Funny. Beautiful.

Anthropologist Dr. Wade Davis has been a lifelong hero of mine, and I have been reading and listening to him for decades. It is a kind of travel, this video. Long may he continue his work and may his students and allies continue it. He challenges so many assumptions of (forgive me this trite phrase) the Western World. His message is such good medicine.

On a parallel path ethnobotanist Dr. Mark Plotkin about his work in the Amazon:

I love these beyond words.
I hope you enjoy them.
