Operation Oysterhood: 8 November

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

— @HaggardHawks

Representation. It counts.

It feels easier to be a woman today. Suddenly, our reality seems and hopefully will be lighter, brighter – with so many more opportunities on offer. And women like Kamal Harris and Jill Biden will inspire us for years to come. Watching Kamala Harris’s speech this morning, I felt empowered and proud. And I know that I am by far not the only one.

Van Jones’s reaction to yesterday’s events brought me to tears, too.

“Character MATTERS. Telling the truth MATTERS. Being a good person MATTERS,” he said.

Yes, all of these things matter.

As someone who has experienced the helplessness and crushing despair of going up against men in powerful positions who lack integrity, lie, steal and do only damage, and of being told that my truth meant nothing, that I did not matter, to see the end of one of them on the world stage feels like a private victory. There was so much at stake, and this time decency prevailed. Thank goddess!

“Today is a good day,” Van Jones said. It is indeed.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

“Physical distancing remains one of the key strategies to curb this pandemic.”
