On What Makes Us Feel Better When We're Sad?

"I've always been the most emotionally available person in the room at any given time. I have to be because if I’m not then who is going to be the mother hen to everyone?" I'm also the oldest daughter and this hit home.

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 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.
