Getting us to cities was supposed to be the final, necessary step in our assimilation, absorption, erasure, the completion of a five-hundred-year-old genocidal campaign. But the city made us new, and we made it ours. We didn't get lost amid the sprawl of tall buildings, the stream of anonymous masses, the ceaseless din of traffic. We found one another, started up Indian Centers, brought out our families and powwows, our dances, our songs, our beadwork. We bought and rented homes, slept on the streets, under freeways; we went to school, joined the armed forces, populated Indian bars in the Fruitvale in Oakland and in the Mission in San Francisco. We lived in boxcar villages in Richmond. We made art and we made babies and we made way for our people to go back and forth between reservation and city. We did not move to cities to die. The sidewalks and streets, the concrete, absorbed our heaviness. The glass, metal, rubber, and wires, the speed, the hurtling masses- the city took us in. We were not Urban Indians then. This was part of the Indian Relocation Act, which was part of the Indian Termination Policy, which was and is exactly what it sounds like. Make them look and act like us. Become us. And so disappear. But it wasn't just like that. Plenty of us came by choice, to start over, to make money, or for a new experience. Some of us came to cities to escape the reservation. We stayed after fighting in the Second World War. After Vietnam too. We stayed because the city sounds like a war, and you can't leave a war once you've been, you can only keep it at bay- which is easier when you can see and hear it near you, the fast metal, that constant firing around you, cars up and down the streets and freeways like bullets. The quiet of the reservation, the side-of-the-highway towns, rural communities, that kind of silence just makes the sound of your brain on fire that much more pronounced.

— ¿Te sientes bien? ¿Estás segura de que deberías estar de pie como si nada? Falta muy poco para que des a luz y me preocupa que pueda hacerte daño —mencionó mientras se aseguraba de sostenerle el brazo con suavidad, la barriga había crecido demasiado y según sus cuentas estaban a escasos días de que los gemelos finalmente llegaran, por lo cual, estaba preocupado, emocionado, demasiadas emociones.  @magnificentpandadecuaderno​

Chin up Arlo.   Hope things turn out well.
A lot of Youtubers are concerned with the sudden influx of Youtube wanting people who “look like kids would enjoy it” to automatically have their stuff be “for kids.”  He goes into it here

To cry is to waste the feeling. He needs to dance with it. Crying is for when there’s nothing else left to do.

October 2019 Wrap Up
Tumblr media
Image from my Goodreads page
It’s already time for a monthly wrap up! Dang! I didn’t finish as many books as I had hoped, but that’s ok. There’s always November. *shrug* 
I don’t actually have a lot to say about this months books. Most were very “meh” to me, but I have reviews coming out soon for the following books  that I ADORED. So be on the lookout for them (oddly they both deal with nine houses): 
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Gideon the Ninth by Tasmyn Muir
The only other book that really stood out to me was There There by Tommy Orange. It’s incredibly well written and I know it received a lot of positive feedback when it was originally released. I just now got around to it though (so happy I did) and now I understand why it received so much praise!.
As for looking forward to November? I have a lot of books on my TBR pile (*sigh*) but a few favorite authors/series have new books coming out that I’m looking forward to reading!
Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater (Release: November 5, 2019)
The Toll by Neal Shusterman (Release: November 5, 2019)
Supernova by Marissa Meyer (Release: November 5, 2019)

Later you remember your mom saying to take drugs was like sneaking into the kingdom of heaven under the gates. It seemed to you more like the kingdom of hell, but maybe the kingdom is bigger and more terrifying than we could ever know. Maybe we’ve all been speaking the broken tongue of angels and demons too long to know that that’s what we are, who we are, what we’re speaking. Maybe we don’t ever die but change, always in the State without hardly ever even knowing that we’re in it.
