Happy Birthday, Mary Shelley
"Nothing makes you think about death quite like a birthday. For no writer is this a more appropriate paradox than for Mary Shelley, who was born on August 30th, 1797. Shelley’s most famous work, the reason why we remember her birth 217 years after it occurred, is Frankenstein, which tells the story of a young doctor who creates a living being out of dead body parts, leading to much sorrow.”

I went on a shopping spree today! I understand that I am so lucky to continue living like this. The Chicago police were not sent to “clean up the streets” of my neighbourhood. The store I started my day with, Women and Children First(independent and feminist) was ready to remind me of this with it’s sizeable intersectional race, gender, and sexuality section (second photo) I really recommend it. Their children’s section prominently displaced the fantastic “Mommy, Mama and Me” (pictured above) depicting a multiracial same sex couple and their child. Too cute! My second shop, RavensWood Used Books, appeared apolitical.( It was like a labyrinth in both the best and worst ways (observe oblivion in photo five). The final place, Myopic Books, was well stocked but the prices were high (check out the $40 vintage copy of “Living poor with Style”) as the three stories and fiction A-E balcony! (The view from it can be seen from the seventh image). That’s my cousin in the sixth photo, I has so much fun with her as she showed me around.
