I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.

I’m getting scared as fuck to be alive right now.
Don’t let it disappear. Not now, not ever.

Finished watching Twin Peaks, after month-long breaks between episodes and then binge-watching until 3 A.M.
My “what the actual…?!” face happened more times than I can remember. Kitsch and truly dark/frightening/surreal beyond comprehension, in turns.

In this funny, poignant talk, Brené Brown explains what makes us feel a sense of love and belonging. It’s a powerful reminder (especially for all you Type A’s out there) to embrace the messy and unknown, even when that leap of faith seems scary or uncertain.
(“Researcher-storyteller,” I like that.)
So funny - have had similar experiences at school, where the word “sentimental” was used condescendingly, as if it were a weakness, as if it indicated artistic and conceptual failure, etc.
Also, in the midst of rereading Nelson’s Bluets, underlining sentences and whole paragraphs, finding beautiful things I hadn’t noticed before.

Meryl Streep, Sophie’s Choice 1982
It’s true, sometimes I seriously girl-crush on Meryl Streep.
