↳ [2/5] The Secret Garden (1993)
"The spell was broken. My uncle learned to laugh, and I learned to cry. The secret garden is always open now. Open, and awake, and alive. If you look the right way, you can see the whole world is a garden."

Congressman: Some Border Kids Are ‘Not Children’ →
Listen if you’re 14, 15, 16, 17 years old and you’re coming from a country that’s gang infested, particularly with MS-13-types. That is the most aggressive of all the street gangs. When you have those types coming across the border, they’re not children at that point. These kids have been brought up in a culture of thievery. A culture of murder, of rape. And now we are going to infuse them into the American culture. It’s just ludicrous.
Holdon, I speak Old White Man. Let me translate.
"These kids are from places that have been ravaged by American via imperialism and ludicrous drug policies, and as such have been robbed of their childhood and innocence, are forced to grow up too fast and are forced out of their home countries, and therefore do not meet my standards of what it means to be a middle-class white American child, so let’s send them back into places where they may well be the victims of violence, because fuck ‘em."
An expert in one of the newer world languages—Old White Man—has thoughtfully translated this oration for us!
I don’t understand why books have shifted from having summaries on the back of the covers to having one-line reviews.
Seriously though. I want to know what the book is about. Not that someone from the Evening Standard thinks it’s a masterpiece.
I have been waiting for this post my whole life.
THANK YOU, again, because once is not enough
Description from 1stdibs: “The “Pomegranate Heart” was designed by Dali in the 1950’s with rubies and diamonds.

The brooch is further highlighted by 63 full cut round diamonds for a total weight of .63 carats. The brooch is signed Dali by Kaston.” 1stdibs.com
