    content warning: rape / sexual assault.

    livemylief:

    many of you already know that earlier this week, my past collaborator, friend, and peer in the writing community, Stephen Tully Dierks, has been outted as a sexual predator/rapist: multiple women (sophia katz and tiffany wines, primarily) have bravely spoken up, and shared their experiences of his…

    glad to see steve stepping up like this

    lindsayzoladz:

Today I ran into an old friend who told me that whenever she is wasting energy freaking out about something that will probably work itself out very easily in the end, she thinks to herself in Paul McCartney’s voice, "You’re doing fine, Chris." It was only after she’d gotten off the train that I realized this was one of the wisest things I’d ever heard.

    Tom Waits Interview

    HOST: How are ya, Tom?
    TOM: Oh, better than nothin’.

    Some people suspect Heath Ledger based The Joker on Tom Waits. Watch this video to see why. (It gets going around 1:30 in)

    The resemblance is pretty uncanny.

    "Life is going to present to you a series of transformations. And the point of education should be to transform you. To teach you how to be transformed so you can ride the waves as they come. But today, the point of education is not education. It’s accreditation. The more accreditation you have, the more money you make. That’s the instrumental logic of neoliberalism. And this instrumental logic comes wrapped in an envelope of fear. And my Ivy League, my MIT students are the same. All I feel coming off of my students is fear. That if you slip up in school, if you get one bad grade, if you make one fucking mistake, the great train of wealth will leave you behind. And that’s the logic of accreditation. If you’re at Yale, you’re in the smartest 1% in the world. […] And the brightest students in the world are learning in fear. I feel it rolling off of you in waves. But you can’t learn when you’re afraid. You cannot be transformed when you are afraid."

    Those final four sentences are something else.

    Sorry for making everything about improv, but.

    (via khealywu)

    This resonates with me. A lot. I’m motivated by fear, way more than is healthy. But, in a perverse way, it works. It’s detrimental to my overall well-being and happiness, but it gets results in the short run. It’s effective, but at some longer term psychic cost of always believing I’m one catastrophic failure away from oblivion.

    "Success is a label that the world confers on you, but mastery is an ever-onward ‘almost.’"
    -

    Sarah Lewis, author of the indispensable The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery, in conversation with Anna Deavere Smith at the New York Public Library. 

    For more of Lewis’s insights on the difference between success and mastery, read this.

    Another great quote:

    I wondered for two years after first speaking to Saunders about this idea of surrender. How do you lean into pain when you’re trying to forge ahead in one of the most inhospitable places on our planet? Why is that helpful? … Surrender, we both admitted, might be an imperfect word to describe it. The term is often synonymous with the white-flag retreat of loss in the context of battle. Yet when feelings of failure come with their own form of pain, empowerment through accepting it — surrender — and pivoting out of it can be more powerful than fighting. The kind of surrender that Saunders means is more akin to Nietzsche’s idea of amor fati, to love your fate. “The demon that you can swallow gives you its power, and the greater life’s pain, the greater life’s reply.”

wiki/Gnomon
'The gnomon is the part of a sundial that casts the shadow. Gnomon (γνώμων) is an ancient Greek word meaning "indicator", "one who discerns," or "that which reveals." Also, gnomon is the name given to an aesthetic process...whereby the whole of the character is revealed by a single part.'


wiki/Gnomon_(figure)
'In geometry, a gnomon is a plane figure formed by removing a similar parallelogram from a corner of a larger parallelogram. More generically, the term gnomon denotes the form that is to be added to a figure to produce a larger figure of the same shape.'

NASA.gov
'A vertical pole of known length embedded into a perfectly level plot of ground or slab of concrete. This device was used by the ancient Egyptians as a method of timekeeping.'

Brittanica.com
'The gnomons include all of the odd numbers; these can be represented by a right angle, or a carpenter’s square. Gnomons were extremely useful to the Pythagoreans. They could build up squares by adding gnomons to smaller squares and from such a figure could deduce many interrelationships: thus 12 + 3 = 22, 22 + 5 = 32, etc.;... In the speculation on odd and even numbers, the early Pythagoreans used so-called gnōmones. This procedure—which was so far Pythagorean—led later, perhaps in the Platonic Academy, to a speculation on “polygonal” numbers.
