You can see it grinding the gears of people's minds. Wearing shorts with jackets. Sangria and hot chocolate on the same menu.

Moon Palace Books is an independent bookstore located just behind Minneapolis police precinct 3, the starting point of the riots. When the police tried to set up a barrier around the store they said no thanks and instead set up a station to give protestors food, water, treatment etc. They even hung an “Abolish the Police” banner in their window.
Please consider using this small business if youre looking for more books, they’re doing mail orders. Here’s their website. https://www.moonpalacebooks.com/

man goes to his therapist. says he's been pretty sad lately. says he's been having trouble finding the joy in things.
therapist asks him if there have been any times he *has* been happy recently. man thinks for a second, then nods. says he's felt comparatively joyful on his commutes home every night, riding the bus downtown from capitol hill.
therapist closes his notebook and nods. "that makes sense," he says. "bus 10 makes me feel good, too."

Trusted wolf preacher.
Tired of living, but still eating.
I'm the sweaty guy at the bar.
