Today we went to Waimea Canyon and did a hike that was just over 5 miles. Wife is more fit than I am, but I was pleased at how well I managed. The views were spectacular! (both on the hike, and on the drive)

whadewilson:

“I’m grumpy. I spit. I wake up on the wrong side of the bed. I’m just…different, apparently.”

Out of every fictional character, Ash from The Fantastic Mr Fox is the one I relate to the most/ am probably the most like, which is kind of strange considering he’s a stop motion fox from a Wes Anderson film, but oh well.

Marianela Nuñez and Thiago Soares in Onegin, Royal Ballet, London, January 2015. © Foteini Christofilopoulou, courtesy the Royal Opera House.

Nuñez cogently highlighted the heroine’s shyness and built the whole drama around it. Her Tatiana is not just an asocial bookworm, but someone who takes refuge behind the cover of a book because she does not feel confident to interact with the rest of the world. The outcome of such reading is breathtaking and bestows vibrancy to all the ensuing actions.

Posted by jbc on May 22nd, 2017 at 8:34 pm

“You did not make the world that you were born into, but now you are among its living makers. You are part of the social fabric. And, in a remarkable feature of human vitality, you have agency to self-consciously contribute to the alteration of its shape and trajectory. It is folly to feign or seek purity or neutrality or to pretend that you can somehow become separate from—uncontaminated by—the sins of society, structures, or the state. Do not run for the hills. Instead, study the apocalypse, map its terrain, and plan your intervention. It is selfish to jump ship when there are not enough lifeboats for everyone. We must conspire to take the helm.”
