Things We Love for Spring | 27.02.16

“You deserve a love who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.

You deserve a love who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.

You deserve a love who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.

You deserve a love who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.

You deserve a love who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry” —Frida Kahlo

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

THE NEW OVEN was delivered last week, and it’s been sitting in the middle of the kitchen for days, as P thought he might get electrocuted if he installed it himself after watching one too many Youtube videos advising the hiring of a qualified electrician if you don’t know what you’re doing. I had a feeling it wasn’t as complicated as he was making it out to be, but we tried to ask around anyway to see if anyone knew any electricians who could do it on short notice …

Of all the pop-culture phenomena that I have managed to miss out on in my life—and there have been many—no lapse might be greater than having never watched a single episode of “Seinfeld.” In the final decade of the twentieth century, this was no small feat, and it was accomplished, in part, because I didn’t own a television set—only high art for me—but mostly because I harbored a long-simmering antagonism toward mainstream America, with the notable exception of professional sports.

On the back of the disk, an inscription identifies her as Enheduanna, a high priestess and the daughter of King Sargon.
