Instead of buying outside, how about some simple Western breakfast from the scratch of whatever I have in home. Lol.

there is hardly
any room
for 
breathing
talking

but always,
always,
time to
think of
this—you,
on one level,

transcending
love as
the end of
existence, on
the other. 

He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day. Choice: that was the thing.

Jewish settlers set fire to mosque in Palestinian city

Ramallah, Oct 14 (IANS/EFE) A group of radical Jewish settlers Tuesday torched a mosque south of the Palestinian city of Nablus, officials said.
The settlers broke the doors and windows of the Abu Baher Sadik mosque in the town of Kfar Akraba and set it on fire after writing racist slogans on the walls, said Rassam Doglas, a member of the Palestinian National Authority in the area.
Attacks by radical settlers on Palestinian property have increased this year, especially in the days before the visit of Pope Francis last May.
Jewish radicals in July killed a Palestinian youth who was abducted in Jerusalem and was burned to death, in revenge for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli students in Gush Etzion, near the Palestinian town of Hebron.
Israeli leftist and human rights groups have accused the government of inactivity in the face of attacks by Jewish settlers.
Tuesday’s attack on the mosque came only hours after UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said in Jerusalem that colonisation was illegal under international law and urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to put an end to settlements which are an obstacle to peace.

It starts so young, and I’m angry about that. The garbage we’re taught. About love, about what’s “romantic.” Look at so many of the so-called romantic figures in books and movies. Do we ever stop and think how many of them would cause serious and drastic unhappiness after The End? Why are sick and dangerous personality types so often shown a passionate and tragic and something to be longed for when those are the very ones you should run for your life from? Think about it. Heath cliff. Romeo. Don Juan. Jay Gatsby. Rochester. Mr. Darcy. From the rigid control freak in The Sound of Music to all the bad boys some woman goes running to the airport to catch in the last minute of every romantic comedy. She should let him leave. Your time is so valuable, and look at these guys—depressive and moody and violent and immature and self-centered. And what about the big daddy of them all, Prince Charming? What was his secret life? We don’t know anything about him, other then he looks good and comes to the rescue.

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “you’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.
