Wednesdays are a time for taking note here on the blog, focusing on the ‘Currently’, a mid-week check-in. Currently Reading, Listening, etc. It’s all part of my current status.
Why God Is a Woman by Nin Andrews
This is a prose poetry sequence that reads like a novel. In the world of these poems, women rule their island and men are second-class citizens. It's uncomfortable at times, viewing this world that reflects our own so harshly. There are times I cringe at the inequality and cruelty, before realising that it is illustrating what is a reality for women in our patriarchal society. It's unlike anything I've read before in the best way.

I've been listening nonstop to news radio and podcasts lately, but I wanted to put together a playlist for the start of the new year. I was lucky enough to receive a new pair of headphones and some new speakers for Christmas so I'm very happily putting the to use in the best way - music sounds so much nicer through nice equipment. I especially like the Glass Animals track this week, it just snuck into my head and stole the whole show. Several of these tracks were stolen from my writing playlist for NaNoWriMo and there are even a few holdovers from my summer playlist that I never got to share here.
