Hope, now? Yes, writer Anne Lamott argues.
Subscriber exclusive: Times of trial are the best times to think about a better future. But how do we navigate through tragedies small and large? Lamott answers: "Through the workings of love, science, community, time, and what I dare to call grace—some elemental shift will occur and we will find we are semi-OK again. And even semi-OK can be a miracle."

QUOTE
Unendowed with wealth or pity,
Little birds with scarlet legs,
Sitting on their speckled eggs,
Eye each flu-infected city.

Altogether elsewhere, vast
Herds of reindeer move across
Miles and miles of golden moss,
Silently and very fast.
W.H. Auden

The Fall of Rome

An epic road trip without a drop of gas
Subscriber exclusive: Several months ago, they went on the Great American Road Trip, barreling from Santa Monica, California (above), to Washington, D.C. And they learned a lot about a nation’s love of gas-guzzlers—and of a nation’s adaptation to alternative energy—while making the trip in an electric car.
