A short list this week.
Europe shouldn’t worry about migrants, by Laurie Penny. “It should worry about creeping fascism. The greatest threat to our “way of life” is not migration. It is that we will swallow the lie that some human lives matter less than others.”

The $1 pocket microscope. I think I’ve blogged this before, but who cares?
Rules for Anchorites, by Cat Valante. “I don’t know if I’ll ever be past writing about Persephone. If it will ever stop being the myth of my life. I don’t really want to–the thing about katabasis (fancy Greek word for descending to the underworld and returning. It’s such an important thing it gets it own word, and my name is Cat, and it’s short for everything) is that it never stops. It’s a process. And if you don’t hit that black stair every year or so things wither up. The whole idea of that story is how a person is a world, and the cycle keeps moving, and it’s never, ever over. You have to go into the earth, you have to come back up again.”
