“These last few years have been hard for trying. The act of surviving in a global pandemic, in the chaos of climate change, in waves hands in all directions, taps a lot out of you.” Here’s Dan Sinker with some wisdom about trying. What I like about this: the recognition that most of us, most of the time, are just trying—with no guarantee of success or even a plan for getting anywhere, just making it up as we go. And also the acknowledgement that even trying has its fallow periods—but given time to rest, a fallow field will eventually reseed itself.
