On Part Two of "Mother's Mind"

Thank you for linking to these articles. I wouldn't have known about them. Now I can send links to my therapist, and we can talk through the possibility of (and my anxiety re:) maternal mental illness and make a plan.

On Ask Santa

I recently received an old leather copy of the Ancrene Wisse.

I love Santa so much more now than I ever did as a child. Now, I think, I truly understand.

On All the New Music Is Out (Mazzy Star, San Fermin, CHVRCHES, Britney)

This new Mazzy Star is so beautiful and perfect for my morning of reading lyric theory. It's as if my sad and awful-poetry-writing, high school self and my considerably happier and dissertation-writing, grown woman self are meeting for the first time. They have things to talk about.

I'll try CHVRCHES next, I promise.

On "A Lady Who Followed Ever Her Natural Bents": Happy Birthday, Dorothy Parker

My best friend and I bonded over Dorothy Parker while we were sad-yet-witty undergraduates. We still do. Thanks for this!
