It Is Always Heavier Than You Thought / Songs for November

We’re nearing the end of the year once more, which makes me at once thrilled for 2019 & afraid of what’s to come. My November so far has been rather lovely, & I can’t wait to share with you all of the traditional year-end things next month—my 2018 love list, the Shadows of Cats reader survey, notes to self for 2019, & more.

Most importantly this month, though: if you are American, please vote in the midterm elections tomorrow. It will take twenty minutes, maximum, & has a real, tangible impact on the future of our country & world. I’m not able to vote this year—I’m old enough for the first time but I don’t have a U.S. address just yet—so I & millions of others are counting on those who are able to vote to propel the future into equality & justice & liberty & science, not division & hatred & gaslighting & fear.

In the mean time—enjoy the November mixtape, friends. I love you as always. xx
