Martha’s Recent Updates

Take This Bread by Sara  Miles
"Boring, and not particularly well written.

Apparently atheists are supposed to be impressed by the spirituality of this book, but speaking personally I found it uninteresting and unfathomable. Perhaps if I had grown up in a culture soaked in Chris..." Read more of this review »
13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do by Amy Morin
"Earnest Youngster Shames Suffering People

A tiresome, lecture-y, scolding screed by a young woman who has a rather limited view of life and why some of us struggle with life differently than she has. Think your way to happiness! Stop "feeling sorry..." Read more of this review »
13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do by Amy Morin
"The fourteenth thing Mentally Strong People Don't Do: read this book or associate with counseling professionals who express themselves in this way.

I tried to give this book a fair shake (as an audiobook) but when I kept yelling at the CD player it..." Read more of this review »

Pema Chödrön
“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.”
Pema Chödrön

Susie Bright
“What's so wonderful about experiments is that often they don't work. They do blow up in the oven; the Bride of Frankenstein does crawl out and strangle you with a black leotard while you shout your last prayers. It's only once you've tasted your own shocking failures, harebrained ideas, and sudden departures that you will realize something quite wonderful.”
Susie Bright, How to Write a Dirty Story: Reading, Writing, and Publishing Erotica

Tony Kushner
“Fabulous. If you possess it, you don’t need to ask what it is. When you attempt to delineate it, you move away from it. Fabulous is one of those words that provide a measure of the degree to which a person or event manifests a particular oppressed subculture’s most distinctive, invigorating features. What are the salient features of fabulousness? Irony. Tragic History. Defiance. Gender-fuck. Glitter. Drama. It is not butch. It is not hot. The cathexis surrounding fabulousness is not necessarily erotic. The fabulous is not delineated by age or beauty. It is raw materials reworked into illusion. To be truly fabulous, one must completely triumph over tragedy, age, and physical insufficiencies. The fabulous is the rapturous embrace of difference, the discovering of self not in that which has rejected you but in that which makes you unlike, the dislike, the other.”
Tony Kushner

Pema Chödrön
“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible in us be found.”
Pema Chödrön
