Hoping that one day Disney incorporates more of its recent female characters (Moana, Elsa, Mulan, Merida, Tiana, Esmeralda, Pocahontas) to their theme parks. Aurora has served her time. My 2c ...

Not really Brooklyn despite the sign but another SoHo (not London, neither is it South of Houston). This SoHo stands for South of Hollywood Road.

Heard on TV tonight: "I used to think that my life would be better, easier, if I were attracted to the headband kind of woman. They're so supportive, quiet, cheerful. Easy, you know? I think to myself, 'Why can't I fall for one of them?' Thing is every single time I run into one of those wives wearing their headband perfectly content to stand in their husband's shadow, do as she's told, all I want to do is say, 'What the hell happened to you, lady? Wake up!' There's nothing wrong with you, David. You're just attracted to women who don't wear headbands, powerful women, the ones who raise the bar and make you jump to get there...
Just makes sure she loves you. If she loves you, she can be any kind of tornado she wants." -- Fitz in "Scandal"

ON THE FIFTH DAY
by Jane Hirshfield

On the fifth day
the scientists who studied the rivers
were forbidden to speak
or to study the rivers.

The scientists who studied the air
were told not to speak of the air,
and the ones who worked for the farmers
were silenced,
and the ones who worked for the bees.

Someone, from deep in the Badlands,
began posting facts.

The facts were told not to speak
and were taken away.
The facts, surprised to be taken, were silent.

Now it was only the rivers
that spoke of the rivers,
and only the wind that spoke of its bees,

while the unpausing factual buds of the fruit trees
continued to move toward their fruit.

The silence spoke loudly of silence,
and the rivers kept speaking,
of rivers, of boulders and air.

In gravity, earless and tongueless,
the untested rivers kept speaking.

Bus drivers, shelf stockers,
code writers, machinists, accountants,
lab techs, cellists kept speaking.

They spoke, the fifth day,
of silence.
