Zeta Ophiuchus
A massive star plowing through the gas and dust floating in space. Zeta Oph is a bruiser, with 20 times the Sun’s mass. It’s an incredibly luminous star, blasting out light at a rate 80,000 times higher than the Sun! Even at its distance of 400 light years or so, it should be one of the brightest stars in the sky … yet it actually appears relatively dim to the eye.

Sure, #weneeddiversebooks so that my future kids know they can be heroes…
…but we also need diverse books so that white readers know my kids can be heroes, too.









I have a theory about the direct line between the disappearance of black families from network TV (Cosbys, Winslows, Banks, etc) and the increased anti-black racism in our culture since it started happening.
I’ve never really been able to articulate it well enough, but this post does it succinctly.

Julia Butterfly Hill lived in a 180-foot (55 m)-tall, roughly 1500-year-old California Redwood tree  for 738 days between December 10, 1997 and December 18, 1999. Hill lived in the tree, affectionately known as “Luna,” to prevent Pacific Lumber Company loggers from cutting it down.

Our biological rhythms are the symphony of the cosmos, music embedded deep within us to which we dance, even when we can’t name the tune.
