The beginning of the project that became BRCA1: “The week of April Fools’ Day of 1981 began badly. That Sunday night my husband told me he was leaving me. He had fallen in love with one of his graduate students, and they were headed back to the tropics the next day.” (Huffington Post)

Maye Musk, 69, is now a CoverGirl: “Aging has been good for me. You develop confidence, you’re able to handle the knocks a little easier. I model for my age. I’m not trying to hide it and say I’m 50. I’m so proud that I’m going be 70.” (The New York Times)

Welcome, fall: “It’s worth the moment to marvel, I think, at the way the light changes in a room after dinner, or to notice that the crabapples are starting to blush.” (Reading My Tea Leaves)

Questions for me about dying: “I wanted to do my bit to change things around, to win back some dignity for the dying, because I don’t think silence serves the interests of any of us.” (The New Yorker)

Tips for living minimally long-term: “Minimalism is not an exercise in tidying, it’s an opportunity for an individual to find out what matters to them and make that their life.” (Design Sponge)

Being organized is a gift I give myself: “I’m just saying that making a good faith, consistent effort to be organized in a few areas that feel significant and worthwhile to you can have a big impact on how you feel, and on how you make others feel.” (Buzz Feed)
