The wife of an Apollo astronaut during her husband’s flight, October 1968.

So many feels in this photograph. Wow. Ever wonder what it feels like to have someone you love leave the planet? No. You don’t. But in generations ahead, photographs like these will emanate hope, celebration, and achievement as we become spacefaring in such a way that it’s as frequent as commercial air travel.

Okay, maybe I don’t wonder about that, but no need to be rude.

In Daily Shouts, Celeste Ballard shares what she looks for in a good summer read: 

“I want to be able to understand the novel half-drunk on rosé. The sentences should breeze by like a handsome man on a Vespa on the Montauk Highway. Speaking of characters, if one of them is a handsome man on a Vespa on the Montauk Highway, count me in! Give that character my number and tell him to call me.”

Hi. Talking about books on the Internet feels ridiculous to me right now, even though I am hiding in them (also Kardashians) constantly anymore, and many of them are quite good. You are already on the Internet, so you probably know about Bad Feminist, and about Roxane Gay, but let’s talk about it anyway. It is astonishingly good. It was the book I needed, and the book that you need. Even though I finished it about a week ago, and even though I read it on the plane, it’s somehow nested on my bedside table instead of the bookshelves. I like looking at it and pretending there are some essays inside that I haven’t read yet, like it’s the Internet in there, expanding and expanding! Never thought I would want a book to be more like the Internet.

Reading this now and loving it. And had so much fun at the reading with Leila last week!
