A brief little work featuring poetry by Jane Hirshfield, animation by Kelli Anderson and music by Zoë Keating. It’s a selection from The Universe in Verse 2018, curated and hosted by Maria Popova as part of her BrainPickings project.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
