I am speaking for myself, and I am speaking for you. Whatever you may think, believe, or feel, if it infringes on someone else’s rights to their happiness, their bodies, or their freedoms; it is not your decision to make for them. . . What people decide to do with their own lives has never bothered me. I am however very troubled by what people decide to do with mine. - C.S.

<<Сегодня я - болгарский министр народного образования, - пишет Боконон, - а завтра буду Еленой Прекрасной>>. Смысл этих слов яснее ясного: каждому из нас надо быть самим собой. «Колыбель для кошки» — роман Курта Воннегута (написан в 1963 году). Стал одним из самых популярных романов автора, вместе с «Бойней номер пять» принёс Воннегуту международную известность. Выражение «колыбель для кошки» означает детскую игру, в которой нитка или бечёвка, надетая на пальцы играющих, складывается в различные узоры. Книга номинировалась на премию «Хьюго» (англ. a Hugo Award for Best Novel) в 1964 году. #kurtvonnegut #catscradle #satire #sciencefiction #americanwriter #novel #science #technology #religion #postmodernism #writer #books #bookstagram #bookaholic #literatureaholic #artliteraturefromarmenia #reading #read #reader #readers #readabook #readtolead

"هنگامیکه من ارباب پیر را ترک کردم او گفت: قاطرها را با خودت ببر موس، و اگه تونستی یک روز پولشو بهم بده. بله آقا، اینا کلمات او هستند. ارباب پیر سالها پیش فوت کرده و این پول الان برای شماست. ۳۰۰ دلار. عمو موس الان می‌تونه بدهیشو پرداخت کنه. زمانیکه راه آهن زمینم را خرید من تونستم پول شما را بدهم. پول را بشمارید آقای پندلتون، من قاطرهارا به این رقم فروختم." اشک در چشمان آقای تالبوت جمع شد. او دست آقای موس را گرفت و با دست دیگرش شانه موس را به نشانه سپاسگزاری فشار داد. "لیدیا، عزیزم، پول را بگیر. تو بهتر از من هزینه‌ها را مدیریت می‌کنی." " بگیرش عزیزم، این متعلق به آقای تالبوت است." پس از آن آقای تالبوت روزهای خوشی را دید و کت جدیدی سفارش داد که آن برایش یادآور روزهای خوش گذشته بود. چهره دوشیزه لیدیا نگرانی همیشگیش را از دست داد. ناشری دیگر که کتاب را خوانده بود با کوچکترین اصلاحات حاضر به چاپ کتاب خاطرات و تجربیات شد و با رقم خوبی آن را به بازار عرضه کرد. و همه چی با آرامش و خوشی در حال گذر بود. تا یک روز نامه‌ای از نیویورک رسید.

Gestern habe ich den Essayband von #rebeccasolnit beendet, den ich schon vor einiger Zeit begonnen hatte. „Men Explain Things to Me“ umfasst sieben Essays, wobei sich nur der erste mit dem titelgebenden Thema und später so genannten #mensplaining beschäftigt. Die anderen Essays sind inhaltlich breit gefächert. Sie gehen unter anderem auf das Thema Gewalt ein, das sie anhand von verschiedenen Statistiken als deutlich männlich geprägtes Phänomen zu belegen versucht. Es gibt aber auch eine Analyse des Falls Dominique Strauss-Kahn sowie eine Auseinandersetzung darüber, ob die Angst vor der Legalisierung der #Homoehe nicht gleichzeitig eine Angst davor beinhalte, dass die Ehe insgesamt als ein Zusammenleben gleichberechtigter Partner und damit eben auch gleichberechtigter Ehefrauen gelte. Ein Umstand, der längst nicht überall rechtlich verankert und schon gar nicht praktisch gelebt wird. Mir hat das kleine Büchlein ziemlich gut gefallen, da es im Unterschied zu anderen feministischen Darstellungen auf provokante oder gar vulgäre Sprache verzichtet, sondern stattdessen sachlich und faktenbasiert argumentiert. Wem also #margaretestokowski und #lauriepenny stellenweise zu derb und ordinär sind, dem sei dieser Band sehr empfohlen. Außerdem war eine schöne Abhandlung zu Virginia Woolf dabei, die mich direkt zu weiterer Lektüre angeregt hat. #sozusagenberlin #feminismus #femalefutureforce #frauenfürfrieden #americanwriter #women #instabooks #buchblog

La troupe de théâtre The Big Funk Company vous convie le 6 février à 19h à une soirée exceptionnelle dédiée à la poétesse afro-américaine Maya Angelou ! Écrivaine, poète et militante, Maya Angelou (1928-2014) reçut la médaille présidentielle de la liberté en 2010 du président Barack Obama. A sa mort, il lui rendit hommage en affirmant qu’elle “a aidé des générations d’Américains à voir l’arc-en-ciel parmi les nuages et a inspiré les autres à donner le meilleur d’eux-mêmes”. . .

“Per noi rilevatori, il censimento è una specie di crociata nell’ignoto. Una volta qualcuno ha usato l’espressione “nella tempesta con una lanterna in mano”. Nella tempesta con una lanterna in mano: parole che molte volte ho pronunciato sottovoce, anche se per me non hanno un senso eroico, ma comico. Il rilevatore di censimento è, per certi versi, inerme. I limiti di quello che può ottenere sono lampanti. Ma forse è proprio questa l’attrattiva per chi svolge questo mestiere ingrato e terribile. Perché è chiaro che, qualunque sia il vantaggio si produce, un’impresa simile non può avere alcun senso, e men che meno può averlo una parte infinitamente piccola e uno sforzo così incredibilmente grande.” Jesse Ball - Censimento @nneditore [Regali di Marito post censimento @istat_it 2018] #censimento #jesseball #booklover #libridaleggere #bookstagram #bookcover #ig_book #instabook #reading #stoleggendo #leggerechepassione #americanwriter

Официантка из нью-йоркского кафе, Или Как тяжело быть собой.🗽 . . . Писателя Даниэля Киза интересовал вопрос множественной личности. На фоне этого и появились романы «Пятая Салли» и «Таинственная история Билли Миллигана».📰 . . . В центре сюжета обычная женщина с необычными проблемами. А все проблемы, как мы знаем, из детства. Сложные взаимоотношения с отчимом и матерью, отсутствие общения со сверстниками, угнетение спровоцировали появление воображаемых друзей: Дерри, Беллы, Нолы, Джинск. Сначала они поселились у нее в голове, но затем стали проявлять себя в жизни.👯 . . . Главная тема произведения – тема помощи и принятия себя. Психиатр Роджер не берет денег за сеансы, а желает помочь провести процедуру слияния личностей.📚 . . . Повествование ведется не только от лица Салли, а и от лица всех девушек. Они постоянно вклиниваются в текст и создают объемный пятиконечник героини. Пора понять, что ментальное здоровье не менее важно, чем физическое.📕 . . . В книге много физиологических аспектов, иронии, «черного юмора» и медицинских терминов, но это никак не мешает чтению. Объем – больше 350 страниц.📓 . . . Оценка 5/5.

Una copertina meravigliosa. Un’epigrafe stupenda. Un incipit interessante. Personaggi straordinari...Una storia potente in cui, la discriminazione razziale e l’ineguaglianza della legge, sono lo sfondo per raccontare qualcosa di intimo e inafferrabile come i sentimenti e le emozioni che ruotano intorno all’amore...alla vita...e che travolgono come un uragano.

"من احتمال می‌دم که شما منو نشناسید، آقای پندلتون." اولین کلمات او بودند. سرگرد بلند شد و با همان حالت همیشگی جلو آمد. او یکی از سیاه‌پوستان مزرعه بود بدون شک. اما آنها سالها از هم دور بودند و او چهره و صدای او را نشناخت. با مهربانی گفت" من فکر نکنم بتونم بگم مگر اینکه تو کمک به خاطر آوردنم کنی." "شما به خاطر نمی‌آورید کیندیز موس را، آقای پندلتون، چگونه مهاجرت کردید بعد از جنگ؟" "صبر کن یک دقیقه،" سرگرد گفت، و پیشانی‌اش را با سر انگشتانش خواراند. او عاشق یادآوری چیزهایی بود که به روزهای خوش گذشته مربوط بود. "سیندیز موس،" او تکرار کرد. "تو با اسب‌ها کار می‌کردی، کره‌کشی می‌کردی. بله، الان به خاطر میارم. بعد از محاصره، تو اسم، کمکم نکن، میشل، را انتخاب کردی، و به سمت غرب نبراسکا رفتی." The Duplicity of Hargraves (9th part) Critical was the situation with Major Talbot and Miss Lydia. There was no one in Washington to whom the major's scruples allowed him to apply for a loan. Deliverance came from an entirely unexpected source. Late one afternoon the door maid came up and announced an old coloured man who wanted to see Major Talbot. The major asked that he be sent up to his study. Soon an old darkey appeared in the doorway, with his hat in hand, bowing, and scraping with one clumsy foot. He was quite decently dressed in a baggy suit of black. His big, coarse shoes shone with ...⬇

View of Munnar from Kolukkumala . From a distance This sight takes my breath away For the rolling green hills seem to touch the beautiful blue sky For the velvetty green tea estates carpet the earth till the horizon For the rising sun reveals true beauty in the wake of the darkest times A closer look reveals The once beautiful mountain roads that now lead into the abyss Debris from houses that sang its sleeping owners their final lullaby Mammoth trees lie on its back Uprooted for the world to see Bringing down with them the ground they stood on- the remnants of a landslide But from a distance beauty is all you see. . Beauty that masks the scars within A sign of immense strength & resilience Is often misunderstood . Let's not judge a beautiful stranger For we know not the demons she slayed To be able to smile that beautiful smile. . . Munnar is slowly rebuilding its infrastructure after the devastating rains of August caused landslides, destroyed mountain roads and many homes. Let's hope Munnar and the rest of Kerala bounce back stronger, sooner than later. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #india #mountainview #luxurytravel #vietnamese #coupletravel #travelers #travelblogger #travelwriter #americanwriter#writers #traveltheworld #womantraveler #girlswhotravel #nature_good #nature_seekers #natureza #nature #globe #globetrotter #worldtraveler #tourtheplanet #explorer #travelbug

The Neelakurinji . Once in a blue moon it blooms Once in 12 years the hills of Munnar are carpeted with this unassuming lavender beauty For my first sighting of the Neelakurinji I searched high & low Drove through the bumpiest off road trails Through stunning mountain & tea estate views But sorely disappointed was I To realise that the unprecedented rainfall this year in Kerala Adversely affected the otherwise magnificent bloom But droopy as they are I'm lucky to have witnessed this natural phenomenon And a vow to myself I've made That 12 years from now, I'll be back To witness the rolling hills of Munnar Bathed in a blanket of lavender So here's hoping for good health, wanderlust, & last but not the least Sunny blue skies in 2030!😁😁😎 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #india #incredibleindia #foodphotography #flowers #ilovevietnam #writer #cruise #beachbum #beachlife #poet #picoftheday #traveleverywhere #americanwriter #nature_seeker #nature_good #natureza #nature #newcity #femmetravel #globelletravels #globetrotter #girlswhotravel #dslrphotography #dslrcamera #dslr #tourist #travelbug
