On Ghosts Of My Youth

@Jenna Wortham@facebook yep, santería is the practice, santera is the person who practices it (not a santería expert, but a native Spanish speaker) The piece was really good!

On Ghosts Of My Youth

@Gef the Talking Mongoose yeah, it reminded me of an old Mayan story I read once.

On Nothing But the Truth: An Interview with Teyonah Parris

Great interview! I'm a huge Mad Men fan but I had never read an interview with Teyonah. She sounds awesome, and that story about people on the show saying the wrong name was handled with grace: she stated that this happens but didn't sound like she was bad-mouthing the show. (If I were her I'd be so angry!)

On Cat-Calling, Around the World

Just shared this in fb and twitter. I live in Mexico City and it doesn't surprise me one bit that it was the worst city. I've changed the way I dress and I hate it, but really this city is not ready for female legs :(

On Stories Like Passwords

this was really good and important. I had a teacher who made weird comments and sent emails that made me uncomfortable. Nothing else happend and sometimes I still think I imagined it or that it was my fault.

An acquaintance of my flew to Banff today for a residency, I hope she finds this sense of community there.

On Lessons My Closet Taught Me

always so happy to see arabelle's byline. This was great, specially the last 2 paragraphs. I never get tired of reading about people's relationships with clothes.

On The Best Time I (Maybe) Got Rabies

This was so funny and also great. I loved your health pieces on the Old Hairpin, but this is probably even better.
