It’s been lonely around this blog lately. I miss you guys.

I just came upon this news, which made me feel old and sad. I remember where I was when I learned he died: in my basement dorm room in Liz Waters Hall. Oh, River. I was never a fan of your extreme veganism,* but I loved you nonetheless.

*I remember an acquaintance making fun of the dreamy actor, declaring, “Don’t eat meat! Do drugs!”

    Oh, River. The space he left can never be filled. He’s still so missed, by you, by me, by many.

    I saw this yesterday and immediately thought of you. I remember sitting in your room one time when I was probably about 9 or 10 and you telling me about how great he was and that he and I shared the same birthday. Every time I would watch Stand by Me with my friends, I would share facts about him that you had taught me and felt pretty cool that no one else knew them. Love you!

    So good to see you, Sara! Though I admit I don’t like to see people I know when I’m in that condition 🙂 You looked great. As always.

    And Mags, I love that story! I’m so glad my obsession with River Phoenix had a tangible benefit! I knew reading all those books and magazines would pay off! Oh, RIP River Bottom/Phoenix.

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
