Glad tidings, glad tidings! (I always wanted to say that). Hope your week is running smoothly, and the final stretch of September is well-spent. Below are a few links I’ve been lovin’ and some photos from around town, including Ambassador Hotel and La Afrah Tea House, where a friend clued me in to the most intensely delightful date syrup, served up with proper French toast. WHO NEEDS MAPLE SYRUP ANYWAY. #wheninrome

Things I Want To Ask My Dog include:
“That afternoon I went to Whole Foods to return the rotten mango and, while I was gone, burglars smashed the French doors and stole my laptop, did you even try to scare them off? I like to think you did. I like to think you bared your teeth and went at them, but the truth is I came home to find you napping with your rope toy in your mouth. Whatever happened, you have to live with yourself.”

On the danger of the idealized self: An interview with Marion Woodman. (via Parabola Magazine)
“For me, perfection is a patriarchal word that splits everything into contraries: black or white. You are then living in constant conflict, and integration is not possible. Even the language is split, so that I find people who cannot endure words such as masculine and feminine... But certainly, in the patriarchy of the business world and in many homes, what’s operating is power—”You be like I want you to be,” and “I love you so much that I know exactly what you ought to be,” and “You will do it, or I will not accept you. I will reject you.” And so people are living in terror of rejection.”
