How to Kill a Wolf

nicolesteinberg:

In dreams I’m my own
totem. I make myself
laugh. My soundtrack
is luminous and pure.
The men are headless
peacocks gathered
'round the chicken coop
& I love the cats so
much I want to snip off
their ears. I lose count
of things that grow
when left alone.
If I die, it’ll be cozy
in the passenger seat.
But I won’t die.

Daaaaaaaamn, Nicole. Damn.


I guess there are two ways to look at it.

“But in one very big way, we’re afraid we’re unique: in being alive. The question of Earth’s specialness is at the center of questions about life elsewhere in the universe. Do other planets have water? Are these planets in their habitable zones? Good atmosphere? Plate tectonics? The list of qualifications seems to go on and on, leading us to wonder if maybe at some point the Copernican Principle breaks down.”

How Weird Is Our Solar System? | astrobites

My latest for astrobites.


The leaves that fall off
Brussels sprouts as you cook them are
A gift for the cook.
She should eat them, standing
Over the stove,
Plucked from the hot pan with her fingers.
This brings good luck
To the home and blesses the meal.

Last night’s SCIENCE EXCLAMATION POINT was a great success. Thank you so much to Telsa and our two amazing scientist speakers, Ben Lillie and Paula Croxson. And to everyone who came out to it.
There will be more.

If we are all 90% star stuff, and a kid decides to go find his real dad - the big bang… okay maybe you had to be there. It’s a shame you weren’t. This was really great.

Unexpected perk of interviewing your cousin about his wildlife photography? He emails you answers to your follow-up questions and attaches a picture of your parents at his bar mitzvah in 1987 .

Sorry I’m sentimental. I’m 9/10ths of the way through A League of Their Own right now.
