"We’re adults, but, like…adult cats. Someone should probably take care of us, but we can sort of make it on our own."

Could you live on $8 or $9 dollars an hour? A computer game made by the Urban Ministries of Durham in North Carolina and an advertising firm called McKinney lets you play out life with a low-wage job as a single mom. The objective is to make it a month, juggling getting a job, rent, a place to live, food and coping with the costs of repairs, things for your child, insurance, etc.. Actually a very hard game to play and full of reminders of the difficulties of life on that kind of salary.
Play the game.

Seriously, if you haven’t played before, play it now. If you have played before, play it again. Especially important during this election season.

LORD THIS IS IMPORTANT

"

Then love, which can’t be helped, slips into the death drive. The death drive seeks comfort and knowledge of the future. It wants the final answer and is afraid of life. It is weary of life. It is weary of self-containment, the continuation of it’s purpose, the channeling of the energies of the self. It wants to step into the oblivion of someone else, and its heart races at annihilation. It renounces and gives up renouncing equally…

… You thought you had closed up all the stops, but you missed this one. You missed it and the serpent slithered in. It is death coming, masquerading as life, and blessed is the man who can see the death drive in the woman. Blessed is he who leaves in the morning without any promise of love. And blessed is the woman who can answer for herself, What about living? What is it about living that you want?

"

Miranda July Called Before Congress To Explain Exactly What Her Whole Thing Is 

"Though finding her polite, many lawmakers later described July as largely uncooperative, especially in regard to her responses to the committee’s queries, which often took the form of enigmatic aphorisms or the suggestion that members of Congress try looking at a candle for a few seconds to find the answers to their questions."
