Happy 420 (disaster).

"I have to tell you a story about how charming my daughter is. She was very little, and I was showing her the crèche. I explained that here was Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. I said, see here’s the Virgin Mary. And who’s this? I pointed at Joseph. She said: the Virgin Joseph!"
And that’s a story about how charming my roommate is!!!


Get excited for Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself, available from Tin House in May: 

Not only am I sincerely worried about google insisting so strongly on the profoundly grammatically incorrect version of my search term,
The results were also very blunt and unpleasant.

“And then the idea of portrait, of any person, placed over your heart, forever, seemed irresistible. How was it that we didn’t walk around with every person who mattered to us tattooed on us forever?”

— Adam Johnson, The Orphan Master’s Son


The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Cancer: Some things might feel messy this week; some things might feel strange, out of order, mixed up. This is a week for rearranging, for putting the pieces back together, for changing the shape of your world if you want to, if you need it. It might not sound like it but it’s such a gift, such a blessing, such a chance. This week you can rebuild your heart and you can rebuild your home and you can make things better; you can make it right. Cook foods that take a long time; cook meals that make you feel strong.

Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.
