Mustafa and Zejneba Hardaga welcomed the Kavilio family, Jewish refugees who had escaped Sarajevo, when the Germans invaded in 1941. The Hardagas were a traditional Muslim family, and despite their custom for women to cover their faces in front of strangers, the Hardaga women were not obliged to cover their faces in the presence of the Kavilios. They were greeted as family in the Hardaga home.
The Kavilios stayed with the Hardagas for a short while until Josef Kavilio was able to move his wife and children to a safer area under Italian rule. Kavilio himself stayed behind to liquidate his business, but eventually was arrested, imprisoned, and forced into slave labour. Zejneba Hardaga, the wife of Mustafa, who discovered where Kavilio was working, would regularly bring food to the prisoners. Josef Kavilio eventually escaped and returned to the Hardaga home. Though the Kavilio family had to flee yet again before the war ended, they eventually reunited and returned to Sarajevo in 1945, staying with the Hardagas until they could find a place of their own. The Hardagas continuously risked their own lives to save this family that they considered their own.

Dearly, my delicate Ariel.
The universe is not a thing that is—it is not a *thing* at all. It is the very action of its going. It is, in fact, its own dissolve, and our lives – the entire span of human existence going back and back and, if we are lucky, forward and forward – the entire span is spent within this dissolve.
So look at the fleeting stars with fleeting eyes, and feel how the earth beneath you gives. It is all a temporary manifestation of particles, and it is all unraveling back to particulate silence. The bustle of the human day will come and will go. And then, there will be night.
But how beautiful these moments within the dissolve! What a temporary perfection we can find within this passing world! Everything good ever done! Everything good that was done today, and all the good people doing it, and back and back and forward and forward, all of that beauty within a universe unraveling.
Be proud of your place in the cosmos. It is small, and yet it *is*.

Busting at the seams…
Having one of those moments where I’m frustrated about how much of my life I’ve given to the family and the kids and also I don’t think I’m going to be able to do the dcbb because of how things have been going in terms of them taking up all my time and I’m really, really fucking upset about that because this means a hell of a lot to me and my moms attitude is literally that she couldn’t care less because their needs take priority and yeah, this isn’t the end of the world but I’m really upset about being told yet again that what I want to do runs second place to what they need/want of me
And you know what I’m just really fucking upset because last week I had a bad blister in my foot that was bleeding and made standing hard and when I didn’t do what she wanted because it hurt to walk and I told her to just ask Gissell to do it she said “then what exactly is the point of you being here?” And I got really angry at her and I was like “because this is my family and I thought I had the right to be with you guys outside of how helpful I am?” And she was like “you’re not much of a help” and I got really angry and I did what she asked me and left and then she apologized and chalked it up to being stressed but I’m really upset still because I feel that outburst was a lot more truthful than she wanted to let on
And I’m just really upset.
