Hot damn, y’all should read this book. I love it, and so does Laura Steadham Smith and Quail Bell Magazine.
Emily wrote a great article on juice cleanses and lots of recipes that look delish! And a couple of the juices I posted are in there too– hi Fragrant juice & Pizza juice! I’m so proud of you!
I like knowing the specific word for a thing, so guides, dictionaries, and strange little encyclopedias have became my most trusted acquaintances. As much as I enjoy writing about fashion, I realize that I know too little about it. Maybe part of growing up is realizing that you know too little about all things. Or maybe too much about one thing. Hm. I only meant to post some fashion terms.
An excellent article by Chuck Sudetic about the Kali Sara festival at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and France’s discriminatory policies and practices that compromise Romani spiritual life and human rights.
An incredible article on The Daily Beast by Nina Strochlic
The devil stays away from those who make music. –Manouche proverb
With a glowing intro by Esmeralda Romanez and an emphasis on the inextricable link between Romani rights and Romani arts, this book seems like it should be on everyone’s wishlist.
I’d like to announce the launch of one of my new side projects, co-founded with the infamous and captivating William J. Leith, The Poet Time video blog! Think of it an ongoing e-reading series. Our mission is to bring the visual and audio magic of oratory performance to a wide audience. And we are seeking submissions from poets and short prose writers alike! Please check out our Submission Guidelines and get going. We want to see your magic!
I am overjoyed and honored that my short story “We Rise Up” is Story of the Week in Narrative Magazine. This story is especially important to me– I’m grateful to be able to share it in one of my favorite magazines. So much love.
ETA: I feel like I should add that the Rromanes title, Opre Roma, translates to “we rise up.” Also, Narrative asks you to make an account to read it, but it’s free, and you aren’t obligated to sign up for any of their awesome emails.
