A finger of absinthe, then a drizzle of laudanum over a sugar cube. The cloudy mixture in the glass promised Cade black slumbers. In the space of two breaths, his coiled-spring mood unraveled, and he felt his mind sink into the drug‘s blissful fathoms. Demonic whispers followed him into the deep. You cannot escape us, threatened Azael.

Outside the frost covered windows of the Führer Bunker, all of which faced north into the Masurian woods, downy flakes took drunken paths to the snow-covered ground. The perimeter of a compound was ringed with land mines. Inside the camp, hundreds of soldiers stood guard day and night. It would be a winter paradise if not for the Nazis.

The locomotive‘s breaks went quiet to a halt. Doors opened on several of the passenger cars. A few people disembarked. They all hunched their shoulders against the cold and moved with the haste of people seeking warmth on a night when gusts off the Seine were like knives that pierced even the thickest coats.

In Target today, I saw this book and I could only think of one thing: Pennywise. So I put the two together for a pic. I HAD to. 🎈

This is an anthropological study of abortion in indigenous communities. The author is biased against this critical right of women. Hundreds of tribes are listed, some with rites and ceremonies, and different techniques are included as well. A fascinating study that proves once again: abortion is normal, women have always practiced it, & it is vital that there be SAFE ACCESS. #mindyourownuterus

Apt Pupil | Stephen King

There is something about what the Germans did that exercises a deadly fascination over us—something that opens the catacombs of the imagination. Maybe we know that under the right set of circumstances the things that live in the catacombs would be glad to crawl out. And what do you think they would look like? I think most of them would look like ordinary accountants.

Louise That‘s a scary thought! Other writers have said similar things: Patrick Süßkind in The Reader, for example, and Hannah Arendt in The Banality Of Evil. (edited) 2mo
JenniferEgnor It‘s terrifying, I totally agree with Stephen King here. Monsters don‘t always look scary on the outside. 2mo

Warning: this introduction by Dershowitz is BIASED! There are many redacted lines, but there is a lot of obvious guilt on every page. Every American should read this report. #dumptrump

If you think Williamson is a bit strange, that‘s okay. But she says a lot things that make sense. This book isn‘t religious, it‘s about getting back to where we should be, to helping each other, to realize our strength when we come together. Please read this book, look around, and ask where our country is going. #vote

Politics... when we get it right, it can be a beautiful thing, but when we get it wrong it can be a terrible thing. And we are all responsible for that. With every election, with every campaign, we are deciding something extremely important. We are deciding what is possibly the fate of millions, the fate of the earth, even perhaps the fate of humanity.

The whole idea of national boundaries is a man-made material category. National borders have a place in our material functioning. But they should be used to organize our societies, not to divide our hearts.

As with any other species, our opportunity for survival lies in the presence of an evolutionary alternative, or mutation. For the human species, that mutation is a mutation of consciousness.

quote
JenniferEgnor

A world in which we habitually and powerfully attack not only each other but even our own habitat, is a world the laws of evolution will not support.

quote

History has shown us what fear can do, but it also has shown us what love can do.

Peaceful revolution is waged not with guns or bullets or violence, but with votes and consciousness and love.

quote
JenniferEgnor

A democratic revolution can‘t be fought once, as in 1776, and then simply considered handled. Democracy is never safe from those who find it inconvenient to their purposes. Every generation has to rise up in its own time, face the challenges of its own day, and continue the revolution in its own way.

Went to the library yesterday looking to check out Williamson‘s book—got it and bought these other three. I am really excited to read this in her perspective. Our nation is in a dark time and it is critical that we turn it around. #lovewins

At the Wolf's Table: A Novel | Rosella Postorino
post image

When you lose someone, the pain you feel is for yourself, the pain that you‘ll never see them again, never hear their voice again, that without them, you‘ll never make it. Pain is selfish. As I lay amid her clothes, the vastness of that tragic end revealed itself in its entirety. It was an unbearable event that drowned out pain, engulfed it, expanded until it occupied every centimeter of the universe, became proof of what mankind was capable of.
