I love how quick people are to band together. Strangers waiting in line, strangers in an elevator, strangers at a concert, strangers in a public restroom, strangers in an airport, strangers on a bus...literally all it takes is one shared glance and we develop a sense of comraderie 🫂

the inherent yet tragic intimacy of inside jokes between people who are no longer friends…the way inside jokes continue to bind estranged people together because mutual understanding is the greatest form of intimacy…the haunting reality of drifting apart yet being tied to one another by an infinitely long thread…could write a whole essay about it

Love, by its very nature, is unworldly, and it is for this reason rather than its rarity that it is not only apolitical but antipolitical, perhaps the most powerful of all antipolitical forces.
Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition

Currently crying over how often Death is depicted not as a evil or terrible figure in relatively recent media (19th century until current day), but as an ancient force of nature, initially ominous but then turning into a comforting figure, acting somewhat as a parental figure, a friend, or a lover, taking us by the hand as we return to the infinity from which we first came when our time is done
I wonder when this shift happened and what is says about us

You know what i think is a universal human experience? Bread. Specifically flatbread.
No matter where you go, if there's people, you'll probably find flatbread. Parantha, naan, puri, tortilla, kesra, focaccia, lahoh, shelpeck, coca, matzo, cebularz, dosa, frybread, pita, lavash, lefse, pancake, shaobing, okonomiyaki, among many many others.
It's just kinda interesting and cute that no matter where, people just went, "must make bread" and i think maybe breadmaking is ingrained into our system

who decided accents are signifiers of incompetence? they are the purest distilled form of humanity's desire to communicate - to reach out to a foreign unknown to offer friendship and understanding. the linguistic fumbles you hear in tonal pronunciation that are several degrees off and in the awkward stretches of silence as they attempt to bridge a chasm of vocabulary differences, these gaps and hollows in their bumpy speech are paved over with love. Can't you hear it? Listen.
The deafening cacophony of us all waiting in line to trade loneliness away for company.
And if you listen carefully enough, you might hear us harmonize in symphony.

i was scrolling through reddit and this comment made me stop in my tracks. because how profound is it to say, “i deserve better, even if i’ve fucked up in the past, even if i’m not perfect, even if i’m not even good. i still deserve love and kindness and tenderness.” how profound is it to declare that you don’t have to do anything to earn love and kindness and tenderness, that you deserve to be treated well simply because you exist.

Oh god. I just finished "the Running Man" and like "the Long walk" this book is gonna stick with me for life I know it.
I wanted to but I couldn't cry during the grand finale. Now that it's over and I had an excited little moment about how good this was I'm bawling my eyes out.
Stephen King, but RICHARD BACHMAN specifically, never fails to portray the human condition. No one is good or bad. You could root for anyone but they all disgust you. I've loved and hated all of those characters. Everyone is so grey. As someone who reads a lot of YA fiction and greek mythology. Grey people make for a delightful change of pace.
I couldn't voice it without writing a 30 pages essay (I'm sure lit majors have done it before and I could do some research) but those characters do so much for me and how I cope with life. As bleak as those books are they help me accept life better. SOMEHOW makes it brighter and easier to love.
Richards, Amélia and Laughlin specifically stuck out to me. I can't express how grateful I am. This is "la Condition Humaine" all over again. (If you like Bachman, check out that book by Malraux. A chef d'œuvre really)
