In a world of panicked political philosophers, delighted apocalypse-seekers, and news going from bad to worse, we all need an occasional break.
Mine came when I started reading less Facebook, and more Humane Pursuits. I’m not sure if it was an ISI.org friend, my mom, or my husband who pointed me in the direction of Humane Pursuits first, but I will be eternally grateful to whomever that I did eventually find it.
Humane Pursuits is great for three reasons: 1. It is uplifting and meaningful without being terribly political 2. It contains well-written and interesting articles 3. It has an easy-to-navigate interface that enables even the technologically-handicapped to find what they’re looking for, or to browse at random.
My mind was screaming YES PLEASE OH MY WORD I CAN’T BELIEVE IT but my fingers typed something to the very professional effect of “Elizabeth, I would be honored and delighted to be featured in your article etc. etc….”
All that to say… feel free to check out Elizabeth’s article, as well as the two others that precede my own feature. And while you’re at it, check out the whole website! Subscribe! Join the community! Spend more time enriching your mind, and less time on BuzzFeed.com.
