I hate the cliché that time flies as you get older, but, oh, man, I’ve really started to feel its validity as of late. I swear it was Memorial Day 10 seconds ago, but, alas, summer is coming to a close. Just yesterday I noticed the sun starting to set around 6, which is crazy because I’m petty sure that in July it didn’t set until 10 p.m. (Alright, that might be slight hyperbole. But only slight.).

Sunday was always steak; Friday was always roast chicken. In ... Read More
A 19th-century artist designed a "map" to the woman’s heart, “exhibiting its internal communications, and the facilities and dangers to Travelers therein." It may seem innocuous, but this piece of odd artwork spells out a lot about the culture's ideas of what was important to women back then.The map heavily emphasizes vanity and self-centeredness: Love of Display, Love of Dress, and Love of Admiration take up a lot of the landscape.
