All I ever really want to know is how other people are making it through life—where do they put their body, hour by hour, and how do they cope inside of it.

That being said, whom do we wish to blame? More precisely, whom do we believe we have the right to blame? The children of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were no less innocent than the young African-American men (and a few women) who were butchered and hanged from trees in small-town America. More than a hundred thousand German civilians, three-fourths of them women, were incinerated in the R.A.F. fire bombing of Dresden on the night of February 13, 1945; seventy-two thousand civilians were killed by the American bomb dropped on Hiroshima. The roll call could be much longer. Again, whom do we wish to blame? What atrocities from the incurable past do we think we are obliged to see?

An Elsa Schiaparelli evening coat from 1937. The two-faced design is the work of celebrated artist Jean Cocteau, with whom she collaborated during her career. Early this year it was announced that Christian Lacroix will be at the helm of Schiaparelli, a highly anticipated move that hopefully will revive her house. Photo from Architectural Digest, September 1988.

question hour!

Can anyone recommend a good word processor or productivity program for Macs? I’m tossing all my thoughts about fat and “undesirable” bodies in experimental lit in a blender and… hopefully making something.

I’d like to track notes & chapters, but at a lower price point (preferably free/open source) than some of the options out there — looking at u, Scrivener & Ulysses

Thanks, y’all
