"Justice Ginsburg … sees her interests as ‘being herself,’ preserving her ‘dignity,’ and promoting her ‘independence.’"
Memorandum from Ron Klain for David Gergen, Justice Ginsburg: Performance Pitfalls (July 14, 1993).

Who will teach me to write? a reader wanted to know.
The page, the page, that eternal blankness, the blankness of eternity which you cover slowly, affirming time’s scrawl as a right and your daring as necessity; the page, which you cover woodenly, ruining it, but asserting your freedom and power to act, acknowledging that you ruin everything you touch but touching it nevertheless, because acting is better than being here in mere capacity; the page, which you cover slowly with the crabbed thread of your gut; the page in the purity of its possibilities; the page of your death, against which you pit such flawed excellences as you can muster with all your life’s strength: that page will teach you to write.
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life, page 58-59 (via literary-ethnography)
Does anyone have a scan of the Hierophant?
Do not remember where I got these images. They were saved to my desktop.
I think I’m in love 😻💖🌙⭐️ I must know what the deck is called and the artist!
This is a Japanese deck called The Spiritual Tarot by artist Akira Uno. There are a few up on ebay now.

STRICTLY HANDPOKED TATOOS
Cosy et colorés les intérieurs de Kate Lewis. Du vert, du rouge, de l’orange, que ce soit à l’aquarelle ou à l’acrylique, l’artiste de Chicago aime les tissus cossus de l’époque Victorienne. Son jaune moutarde et son faux flou me font parfois penser à Bonnard. Oui oui, parfaitement. Un Pierre Bonnard qui se fournirait en vaisselle chez Rice. Why not ?http://katelewisart.com/home.html
- There is a whole group of scarab beetles called flower chafers. They comprise the subfamily Cetoniinae. Many species are diurnal and visit flowers for pollen and nectar, or to browse on the petals. Some species also feed on fruit.
- The Figeater beetle (shown above), commonly known as a “junebug,” is a member of this group. It primarily lives in the southwestern United States and Mexico.
- Figeater beetles are often mistaken for green June beetles (Cotinis nitida), which occur in the eastern US. The only place these species’ ranges overlap is Texas.
- Figeater beetles, unlike their eastern counterparts, are not capable of damaging leaves and fruit as adult. As a result they only feed upon already-injured fruits.
As a kid I was pretty much obsessed with mazes - drawing them constantly, completing maze books, etc. - so when I came across BIG’s life-sized, indoor maze I was ah-mazed! (Had to go for it…) Any way, the indoor maze is housed in Washington, D.C.’s National Building Museum and the tallest walls reach eighteen feet in the air.
Check out a sweet time-lapse video of the construction of the maze below:
