Heat's Tangent City

A friend shared a meme about autism researchers “proving” things that people with autism have been writing about for 20 or more years. I thought about how that is applicable in some way to every group of “other.” When I was going through chemo, I experienced chemo brain, a side effect of many chemotherapies that […]

Immoral beauty. "And when I don't feel it, it's pointless" (Sarah Kane)

Diumenge de Rams. Vaig sortir a fer un volt i, tot passejant, vaig arribar a la Catedral (és fàcil trobar’te-la, he de reconèixer). Feia molt que no hi entrava, així que vaig aprofitar que era dia de missa i l’accés era gratuït. Cop d’arquitectura a l’estomac, és l’efecte que encara em provoca aquesta nau gòtica […]

Adversion

It’s already the season one finale! It’s a weird finale, strangely staid and anticlimactic, probably because the writer’s strike unexpectedly reduced the number of episodes.
