I'm slowly finishing reading Finding Beauty in a Broken World by Terry Tempest Williams. It is painful and beautiful.
"We want to create. We long to create. We can transform a very bleak situation into a place of joy and color. I am a painter who builds things. That's all. When your environment is beautiful it gives you dignity. You feel more dignified and your sense of self-esteem grows. All this is nurtured from working together. Seeds. Planting seeds of beauty helps the tree of community with all its branches to grow."
