Concluding “Reckoning of Joy”

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:51 pm by chavisory

A little over four years ago, I started a blog project called “Reckoning of Joy,” in order to keep track of whatever good in the world we could, as an antidote to the horror show that our news feeds and the world around us was quickly becoming, and to encourage and learn from each other about how good things happen even in bad times.

I was hugely inspired by Rebecca Solnit’s book Hope in the Dark, which I read in the week after the 2016 election. I had no idea how big or small of a project it might be, or how long it might last. I originally only planned to keep going until Trump was out of office, one way or another. Not without serious consideration, I decided to bring it to a close yesterday. I’m thankful for everyone who read, and everyone who contributed to the success of every single victory in this list.

“Reckoning of Joy” is the only blog project I’ve ever both started and ended, but I hope we all keep dreaming and organizing for bigger and better things.
