This is a red-and-white version of the painstaking Dear Jane quilt which I will never undertake but am in awe of anyone who can. It’s called Infinite Gratitude, made for the woman whose collection enabled the exhibit in New York that yesterday’s post mentioned.

The point of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the affects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.

OK, now I get it.

I decided to visit the Boston Public Gardens today, to see the bench from Good Will Hunting, so I could pay my respects to one of my idols. I wasn’t alone, as crowds of young and old stood near, bound together by sadness.

Rest in peace Robin.

Every time I see a post about Robin Williams, I get sad all over again.

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

Option Three: you’ve faced problems that can’t be solved with money no matter how financially secure you are.

The American Folk Art Museum in New York had an exhibit a few years ago of red-and-white quilts. This is one that was displayed there.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazis supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
