How we live

Torre Cat
The Pyramid Cat Colony
Eva Bell

Strangely, the place was overrun by cats of different shapes, sizes and colours.
Baku Wedding
Jim Solan

Rituals attending best friend Elhan’s brother’s wedding reception.
Aby Davis

The spooky darkness below the plane was Iceland. A small island poised above masses of red hot rock, straddling the north American plate. Two kids on a gap year, wanting to see something new.
Planner to the Frying Pan
American experience of Spanish Life - Caroline Hunter
I was standing in a bar ... I realized that it was half past one in the morning; my homework for class at nine a.m. sat untouched

No No No
Sudden Republican About-Face on Vaccines Explained
James Campion
Nearly seven out of ten Republicans refuse to be vaccinated. These are mostly the voter base of the party – white and uneducated, or what is left of this cult. Do the math.
The Overrated Crime Narrative
James Campion 7.10.21
Backlash to Right-Wing Paranoia Fuels Myth
- the numbers of growing crime rates have not only been exaggerated, but fetishized, mythologized, and just plain made up.
Eric Adams needs to be the next Mayor of New York City
James Campion 7.4.21

This is a time to rebuild from the Covid-19 shutdowns and for real police reform, not combative Defund-the-Police nonsense.
When Biafra Finally Comes 6/21/21
Chief Obiaruko Christie Ndukwe

The bloodletting on the streets of Imo State must be stopped forthwith, and a new narrative engendered regarding the Biafra conflict.

Freelancing in Multiple Career Fields: What You Need To Know
Indiana Lee 7.7.21

Just because you’ve primarily focused on writing, that doesn’t mean you can’t bolster your income with photography, graphic design, or editing.
Car Thieves
Alice Vonsimson
Two driving tests taken when I was living in Hawaii had come back with negative results due to technical problems (wasn't sure which pedal was the brake), poor preparation (confused about whether red lights were suggestions or orders)...

Grounds for Abuse
M Joseph Hunt on Café Culture

I have been in an abusive relationship for over ten years. As the cliché goes, it wasn’t always this way. I have become a statistic.
The Nebraska Bedroom Massacre
Georgina Lord

I descend cold cement steps into the basement where a lonely light bulb swings mysteriously from the ceiling, disturbed by someone or something that had just slipped by unnoticed.

Cure for Sceptics
A Cure for Sceptics

by Sam North
(extract from new novel 7.15.21)

“Got a weird one for you today.  What would you pay to get rid of the pain in your hands?”
Love in a Time of War

Larry Clinton Thompson
The German army marched into Chilon on June 24, 1940. Josette Lafleur was among the hundreds of people who watched the soldiers hang the Nazi flag from the balcony of the town hall.

Repossession of Genie Magee
Teleportation Denial
Sam Hawksmoor 7.7.21
“All I’m saying, Rian, is that just because someone thought of it, it doesn’t mean it will come true.  Teleportation is bunk.  Pure bunk.  No one will ever beam up Scotty.  It’s impossible ..."

Martin Green

We did sometimes play stickball when we could get hold of a broom handle and when the older guys weren’t playing.

Summer of Soul
The Politics, Culture & Spirit of Soul
James Campion 7.16.21
In Praise of Summer Soul

Musician and filmmaker, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson may well have made the seminal concert film of the age – the rock/soul/funk/gospel/blues American age.
An Imperfect Blessing
by Nadia Davids

Publisher: Umuzi
Sam Hawksmoor review 7.9.21
A strongly visual, completely engaging portrait of a Muslim family in Cape Town in the year of transition 1993

Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em and little fleas have lesser fleas ...ad infinitum - Augustus de Morgan
