    ‘There’s No Such Thing As a “Bad” Abortion’


    This part:

    "It’s important to discuss experience when it comes to broadening people’s perspectives on why women have abortions and what goes into that decision. But, when it comes to what the law should be, the complicated feelings surrounding abortion shouldn’t play a role. Look, divorce makes a lot of people really unhappy. It has socially positive and socially negative effects, a lot of people struggle with their divorce for the rest of their lives, but we would never try to outlaw divorce because people feel all sorts of things when they go through with it."

    We’d talked about it often over the course of 10 years together. We both seem to have this same vision of ourselves; this alternate reality in which we’re the cool, west coast type of person, cruising down the pch along whichever portion we’d most recently seen actors driving alongside in some movie or tv show. Probably the Bachelorette if I’m being honest here (and speaking only on my own…

    August, 1983

    I was conceived while my parents were nearing the end of their honeymoon summer in snydertown, PA. This is the same shithole of a town, somewere in in the nowheres of Pennsylvania between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, that my grandmother was born in (and probably also conceived in); a place I remember thinking was eh-ok as a kid (this is yet still different from A-Ok), but as an adult, think is…

    Thirty seems a little young to write one life’s story. But I guess when you’ve been hearing people repeat that phrase since you were at most, ten years old, the time, i feel, has come. Most of this stuff feels like it happened to another person, and as the more time passes I’m sure that feeling will only intensify. I’m looking forward to closing many of these doors that lead to my past, but not…

    "The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world."

    Carefree, if only for a moment

    The French charity the Mimi Foundation told 20 cancer patients they would give them makeovers. All that was required of them was to keep their eyes closed to make the reveal more exciting.

How common is your birthday? A brilliant infographic, one of the year’s best.

Mine is surprisingly on the less common side, despite knowing quite a few people born on the same date (4/19).

    "This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important."
