Curated Content: Love’s in Need of Love Today

Last December, Slate held Wonder Week in an attempt to honor one of our greatest living artists before he passes. I did not know this until now. So I'm sharing every single Wonder Week piece they did that I found awesome. So here's a casual 11 links.
2016 has been a year of almost unbearable loss. We have lost athletes, artists, leaders, innocent civilians, and some fundamental faith in our country. And of course we’ve lost so many great musicians. Each of these losses, from David Bowie in early January to Leonard Cohen just a few weeks ago, occasioned extraordinary tributes from publications and individuals, floods of love and appreciation from writers, contemporaries, collaborators, and fans. Our social media platforms became impromptu fanzines and mixtapes, collaboratively curated by friends and strangers far and wide.
