It’s sunny and 75 / It feels so good to be alive

Would like to shout out Laird Borrelli-Persson @the_lbp — Vogue’s archive editor and a fount of knowledge not only about the magazine but all of fashion history and art history and the endless ways they intersect. Here is an example how Laird works. She will quietly notice a brief paragraph in a long story — in this case, a paragraph about Loie Fuller in the September profile of Taylor Swift. Only she will know that Vogue visited Loie Fuller at home in 1913. She will then quietly dig up that story and repost it online, along with an elegant summary of Fuller’s career and work, noting the relevant connections between Fuller and Swift, among them: “One of the links between these two Americans born 127 years apart is copyright.” I encourage you to read Laird’s post (link in bio) and all of her writing, for that matter.

My first encounter with @armchairexppod was at 3 am — I couldn’t sleep and played a random interview I’d come across with Kaitlin Olson of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” Somewhere in the course of this interview @daxshepard tells about the time, high on ecstasy, he tried to pet a seal on the beach. The seal chomped on his hand twice as beachgoers scolded him to leave the wildlife alone; the wound became infected, naturally. I laughed so hard the entire bed shook, waking up Bill and Yoshi, who went into a barking fit. Needless to say I was thrilled to visit “the attic” last month with @jaylclendenin and write about this most excellent podcast. Link in bio! (No, “Abaguirre” is not my usual byline; it’s a glitch.)

Let’s hear it for the therapy dogs at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. More dogs should get yearbook pages! I nominate Yoshi for best personality and most likely to succeed 🐾

Guess who burrowed into an unstable mound of wood and junk in feverish pursuit of a lizard? And guess who threw her back out trying to dislodge the velvet seal from the hazardous pile? We both survived.

Sister Maribel Lara Hernández, 50, a volunteer at the Kino Border Initiative, leads an intake process with two men who have just been deported. “I like the moment in which we ask the intake questions,” Hernández says. “It is an opportunity to share my compassion and give life: I notice their situation, their degree of vulnerability, and it opens up a window of communication. I can comfort them, make them feel that they are not alone, even though they haven’t managed to cross the border. Especially the women are admirable, courageous, and struggling for their families. It is a sacred moment of humanity and dignity.” Photo by Alex Webb.

Joanna Williams, 28, is the director of education and advocacy at the Kino Border Initiative, which is based in Nogales and operates on both sides of the border. At its aid center on the Mexico side, known as el comedor, deportees line up for their first hot meal since being released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Williams says she has noticed a dramatic increase in the deportation of longtime U.S. residents whose children are American citizens. “Families who have been in the U.S. for a long time are being separated,” Williams says. “I appreciated the outrage over family separations this past summer, but it was an eye-opening moment for me. If people truly knew how the U.S. government is ripping apart families every single day, and continues to do so, there would be much more pushback.” Photo by Alex Webb.

Kids staying at Casa Alitas tend to gravitate to the art supplies. “Many are too young and traumatized to talk about what they have been through, but their artwork speaks for them,” says Valarie Lee James, 64, a volunteer and activities coordinator at the shelter. “When we hang their pictures on the walls, they are so happy. Their story joins the others.” Photo by Alex Webb.

Families are dropped off at Casa Alitas by ICE. Many of them are asylum seekers from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. They see a team of doctors right away, then they eat. “They haven’t eaten well in a long time,” says Teresa Cavendish. “The kids are hungry. They’re shaky.” Their stay at the shelter usually lasts one or two days. Most have 15 days of humanitarian parole and must use the time to travel to the location of their first immigration appointment, which might be across the country, depending on where their sponsor is.

Victoria Ortiz, 41, is a volunteer at Casa Alitas, a halfway house for Central American families seeking asylum in the States. What began in a four-bedroom home has expanded to include a sprawling Benedictine monastery on the east side of town, formerly home to the Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. “Why am I helping? First, because I am a human, and I see other humans suffering,” Ortiz says. “Also, I am a mother, and I see mothers trying to give their kids a better life, a safer life. And I am a woman, and it’s difficult to be a woman in a world where women are not respected. I am an immigrant, from Chile. I am a Christian, and in all people who are suffering, I see Jesus suffering. And because it makes me happy. At the end of the day, I feel full. Some people say, ‘It makes me happy to buy shoes.’ For me, it makes me happy to help these people.” Photo by Alex Webb.
