cover indeed

Beautiful weather, perfect. I am happy about many things right now: life in general; the way the So True readings are shaping up after last night’s rehearsal with an extraordinarily diverse group of great writers; the buds on the rosebush; the pretty summer skirt I found at Doubletake; Jon Stewart’s brilliance and humour, a marvel that we can still enjoy for a few more months; the fact that I don’t care about the shocking FIFA scandal, because nothing could matter less to me. Small mercies.

This is for my daughter, who will breastfeed anywhere she damn well pleases.
