From the Latin obnoxiōsus, circa 1580s.

Father’s Day can stir up a whole spectrum of emotions for people. While I’m privileged enough that today is one of joy where I celebrate my exemplary daddo, it’s impossible to ignore the extreme pain of other families, particularly those families torn apart on our borders. This isn’t political. This is baseline human decency. If you can, check out the link in my bio for ways to support these communities.

Yellowstone defies description, but here were my impressions: honey-colored canyons and silver water, nocturnal eyes at dusk, smudged paw prints and sulfur brume, wet rhyolite terraces, sunsets dribbling yolk into the trees, mules ears flowers the color of steeped sunshine, bison musk, still pines stretched over silent lakes, glacier erratics split by forgotten ice, coin-colored mushrooms, sagebrush silvering the meadows, horse muzzles and dust, pine trees fire-polished to a velvet sheen, displaced gods, summer snow, and a vastness that won’t fit inside words like “magic.”

Back in 2012, I read a Guardian article about how a collection of fairytales that had been locked away in an archive for almost 200 years had been found in Germany. These are a collection of tales by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth, a Grimms contemporary and historian. Unlike Grimms tales, these were never updated. They’re a snapshot of a particular place and time, like pressed flowers. These are not living fairytales. I don't think he was interested in how we update and revise and retell our fairytales to reflect our growth (or backpedaling). These tales have a strange abruptness to them. They're stripped down and unlovely and raw, and I loved them and the uncanny illustrations by Willow Dawson.
