Haven't we have all been this kid or known this kid?

Dolly Parton

My favorite line so far in the brilliant podcast Dolly Parton's America is from a Dolly fan at a concert who tweets, "That majestic bitch just started playing the goddamn PAN FLUTE."

Keeping It Real

In Japan, there is a Halloween subculture that zeroes in on the most mundane details of life for inspiration. There is a poetry to these snapshot costumes that I really enjoy.

Easy Now

seal lullaby

oh! hush thee, my baby, the night is upon us
and black are the waters that sparkled so green.

the moon, o'er the combers, looks down to find us
at rest in the hollows that rustle below. 

where billow meets billow, there soft make a pillow
oh, weary wee flipperling, curl at thy ease.

the storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee
asleep in the storm of the slow-swinging seas.

I Am A Feminist

I binge-watched this show... 

I read this article... 

I thought about this essay... 

I laughed at this post...

I want to remember that I am a feminist. That I am not alone.

And that it's hard.

Guns & Hate

How about we treat every young man who wants to buy a gun like every woman who wants to get an abortion? Mandatory 48 hour waiting period, parental permission, a note from his doctor proving he understands what he's about to do, a video he has to watch about the effects of gun violence. Let's close down all but one gun shop in every state and make him travels hundreds of miles, take time off work, and stay overnight in a strange town to get a gun. Make him walk through a gauntlet of people holding photos of loved ones who were shot to death, people who call him a murderer and beg him not to buy a gun. -- Author Unknown

Will we ever learn and choose a different path as a nation?

If you want to understand any problem in America, you need to focus on who profits from that problem, not who suffers from the problem.  -- Dr. Amos Wilson
