I write this as I finish up my last plate of enchiladas de mole in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Mexico. Over the next two days, I will travel back to Alexandria, Virginia, and tomorrow afternoon I will get to snuggle my dogs and hug my husband. (Realistically, in that order.) I am nonetheless grateful for the lengthy travel alone because it will give me time to process my trip and everything I learned.
The Threads tagline is "Celebrating diversity through design." The Threads team doesn't just do this in creating and selling our clothes; we try to live our lives in a way that celebrates diversity as well. Celebrating diversity, however, is not always straightforward; it sometimes means celebrating something that makes us uncomfortable and expanding our understanding of that thing.
