Happy Fourth of July!

From Birdie, Jinx, and me

Summertime is busy for many people.  I know it’s hard to keep up with serials. So, I’m even more grateful that you read Brother Love.  

In the USA, lots of folks will be taking time off and/or vacationing before, during, and after the Independence Day holiday.  (I know, from having been a kid with a birthday during that time, how scarce people are.)  I had not planned to, but I’m taking a break this weekend.

Next weekend I’ll be back with more photos from Dan Antion of No Facilities fame, as well as Brother Love, Chapter 10 — A Cut.

#MondayMood: For Oscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and His Daughter, Valeria

To be civilized does not mean having studied at university, or having read many books, or possessing great wisdom: we all know that certain individuals with these characteristics were capable of committing acts of absolutely perfect barbarity. To be civilized means to be capable of fully recognizing the humanity of others, even though they have different faces and customs to ours; to know how to put oneself in their place and look at ourselves as if from outside. No one is definitively barbarian or civilized and each one of us is responsible for our actions. But we, who today receive this great honour, have the responsibility to take a step forward towards a little more civilization. Tzvetan Todorov
