It’s easy for the victims to say they forgive. The guilty cannot forgive themselves. —
Deborah Feldman, a former Hasidic Jew, relaying the words of her German boyfriend’s mother about the Holocaust (I Need to Talk About Anne Frank - The Moth)
I don’t completely love this author after reading her book Unorthodox, but she speaks well and this Moth story is worth listening to.

A Q&A column in the Wall Street Journal rubbed me the wrong way this morning:
One of the not very well-paid cleaners working in my office sometimes chats with me about her life, including her family’s financial difficulties. Last week, she told me that she had just got a puppy. I was shocked that she would take on the responsibility of caring for a pet when she doesn’t have the money to take care of her family. How could someone in her situation be so careless and irresponsible with money? —Andrea
I could only think of this photo and Facebook comment from Humans of New York last month that gave me a strong dose of perspective and compassion.
My views on dogs and money seem to have shifted as of late.

This is so much about me it’s not even funny.
Take note, ladies.

Make your own vegetable stock for soup anytime once you get this vegetable bouillon in your freezer.
I’ve been making this vegetable bouillon for a few years now, and it’s SO GREAT.
