"This
is a rainbow of light over our last
job. Lenny Kaye, Tony Shanahan
and me at the Festival of Voice
in Cardiff. A night of poetry and
song, ending with raucous energy.
The fellows are heading home
and I am off on my own. First
saying farewell to the people
of Cardiff, the swans and the
little Norwegian church." The wonder and beauty of Patti Smith's Instagram account.  

"As it turns out, I was right about one thing – to call what happens at midlife “a crisis” is bullshit. A crisis is an intense, short-lived, acute, easily identifiable, and defining event that can be controlled and managed. Midlife is not a crisis. Midlife is an unraveling." Brené Brown

"Bourdain played a tremendous role in not just defining the ways we ate food and talked about it, but in revealing how a TV show could use food as a gateway to explore culture, society, and the world at large." New York Magazine

"A clear pattern emerged. Many of the country’s largest and most prestigious companies still systematically sideline pregnant women. They pass them over for promotions and raises. They fire them when they complain." The New York Times

"I’m going to be honest: I tried microdosing for a month, and the best part of it was that, for some reason, it helped me come up with some of my best outfit combination with clothes I already had in my closet." Man Repeller 

"What You Can Do Right Now to Help Fight Trump’s Family-Separation Policy" New York Magazine
