Okay, you got me. This is a cartoon, but it’s not a “funny” per se. Liza Donnelly is a cartoonist for the New Yorker and other outlets, and I subscriber to her Seeing Things newsletter. This week’s cartoon was really poignant for me. First, because I do this work in order to connect our community and help folks learn from each other irrespective of political ideologies (mine or anyone else’s). Second, because I have seen some of this curiosity and willingness to engage and discuss in Burlington these last few weeks. I hope you find I exhibit and model the humility displayed in the second frame, and I hope my work inspires you to do the same.
Have an amazing Friday and Weekend, neighbors and friends.
