Margot Adler, author of Drawing Down the Moon has died of cancer. :(
July 28, 2014, posted on Facebook by Alex Adler:
Old friends, long time fans, today at 4am Margot breathed easily for the first time in two weeks. Later today, at 10:30am she was pronounced deceased.
Her condition had been getting much worse over the weeks and months and the brain radiation (which she had a treatment of scheduled today, tomorrow, and wednesday) was thought to help her double vision, since it was the cause.
Well, Margot and John both won’t be seeing double anymore, but they will be seeing each other for the rest of time.
With much love and difficulty do I write this,
Her son, Alex
For those who don’t know, the voice for the faceless old woman is the actress who played Matilda.
And her voice is amazing.

The school had cosponsored a letter to President Obama asking for a religious exemption to his executive order to end employment discrimination based on sexual orientation.
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
this gives me hope.
It annoys me when the women’s version of a man’s costume just has the belly bared, but… let’s be real, Gambit would totally do it.
“Women of Power is Warsaw-based photographer Katarzyna Majak’s series celebrating the spiritual women living in Poland. Ranging in ages 30-80, Majak’s subjects are modern-day witches, healers, Wiccans, Druids, spell casters and visionaries, channeling the pagan and shamanic beliefs of their ancestors. Intrigued by these unconventional spiritual paths existing within the predominantly Catholic country, Majak traveled throughout her native land collecting portraits and stories from 29 women. Her resulting images catalog a variety of wise and powerful practitioners, standing solid with their talismans and tokens of choice.” (x)

Oso WA, 2014
I saw with much joy that the last missing Oso resident was found this week.
Some of the hardest yet most emotionally fulfilling aspects of my job was the time I spent in the company of the Snohomish Search & Rescue, Medical Examiners, volunteers, firefighters, National Guard, and the various law enforcement agencies who came together in the wake of this tragedy.
Let Harmony Find Them.
It’s a cute little thing though.
Sometimes it is hard to remember that owls are incredibly dangerous predators seen by cultures throughout the world as ill omens. Especially when they look like toasted marshmallows.
My boss once described them as flying pillows filled with seething hatred.
Further confirming that owls are the avian equivalent of cats.
