You have survived too many wars 
to be breaking your own bones 
just so you fit into hearts
of those
who refuse to fit you.
So darling, 
walk away when they don’t want you
Run
Remember,
leaving is sometimes loving
yourself.

Lucy Hilmer photographs herself every year on her birthday. She’s been doing this for 40 years, since her 29th birthday. In 2015 she will be 70. Soon a book, Birthday & Other Suits and a companion piece film will reveal how a woman who came of age before women’s lib used her camera to peel off society’s “pretty girl” label and define herself from the inside out.

A Scientist’s Mission To Break The Itch-Scratch Cycle
Dr. Gil Yosipovitch is a leading scientist in the field of itch. He says he hopes to gain more respect for the debilitating power of chronic itch — and to get more doctors on the search for a cure. Here’s what’s happening in your brain when you’ve got chronic itch: 

"The neural system is significantly involved. It transmits itch signals from the skin, where itch emanates, up into the spinal cord and up to the brain… The nerves are acting wacky. When these patients have chronic itch [they] become very sensitive, [so] even small activities… that would not usually cause us to itch, like changing our clothes or changes in temperature or environment or exposure to soaps could irritate the system."

A humorous look at “Lean In” for toddlers
:

“When your daughter pulls Chairman Meow’s tail and you say, ‘No, sweetie. We love kitty. We treat kitty gently,’ and your daughter looks you in the eye, cackles gleefully, and bends over to yank the cat’s tail, she’s not flaunting the hollowness of your parental authority. She’s leaning in.”

Don’t ask yourself, “Is this normal?” Instead, ask yourself:

Is this healthy?

Is this good for me?
