A good friend once shared a very simple piece of advice with me—her own personal key to happiness: Mind your own business. We’ve all got our own circumstances. Some you’ve chosen. Some you’ve been dealt. But none of them will stand up to the scrutiny of hypotheticals or comparisons. However you find success and happiness, given your circumstances—that’s your own business. Mind it well.

The Tiny Dialectic. ‘I’m making a very fine distinction’

Follow directions for ‘The Dialectic’ but with thumb and forefinger one centimetre apart. Bring hand toward eyes for closer inspection.

Use when unpicking specific detail, or when too self-conscious to use ‘The Dialectic’ gesture.

Home of Joseph & Mary Merz, architects. Daughter Julie & cat. 48 Willow Place, Boerum Hill.

From Dinanda Nooney’s series of photographs depicting Brooklyn families, 1978-79. I actually bought that exact “High Class Cat” poster from Neil a couple of years ago at his yard sale, and was so excited to see it in this picture that I had to share it.

It’s Saturday. I just made a fancy coffee drink with the fancy Nespresso machine I got for Christmas, it’s raining, and I have about 18 hours of work to do this weekend. Bill Evans is the best soundtrack to all of it.

"Where or When," Peggy Lee with the Benny Goodman Trio (1941)

It’s hard to find a bad rendition of this song — it’s been covered so many times since it was written in 1937. This Peggy Lee version is my favorite, though.

"Should I," Patience & Prudence (ft. Mike Clifford), 1959. Lord this song is so good.
