Need a **perfect** summer read? Look no further than Mia McKenzie's “razor-sharp and outrageously funny" (Taylor Jenkins Reid) new novel, SKYE FALLING. Out today, full description below!

-------------------------------------------------------

A woman who’s used to going solo discovers that there’s one relationship she can’t run away from in this buoyant novel, a probing examination of the complexities of family, queerness, race, and community.

When she was twenty-six and broke, Skye didn’t think twice before selling her eggs and happily pocketing the cash. Now approaching forty, Skye still moves through life entirely—and unrepentantly—on her own terms, living out of a suitcase and avoiding all manner of serious relationships. Maybe her junior high classmates weren’t wrong when they voted her “Most Likely to Be Single” instead of “Most Ride-or-Die Homie,” but at least she’s always been free to do as she pleases.

Then a twelve-year-old girl tracks Skye down during one of her brief visits to her hometown of Philadelphia and informs Skye that she’s “her egg.” Skye’s life is thrown into sharp relief and she decides that it might be time to actually try to have a meaningful relationship with another human being. Spoiler alert: It’s not easy.

Things get even more complicated when Skye realizes that the woman she tried and failed to pick up the other day is the girl’s aunt, and now it’s awkward. All the while, her brother is trying to get in touch, her mother is being bewilderingly kind, and the West Philly pool halls and hoagie shops of her youth have been replaced by hipster cafés.

With its endearingly prickly narrator and a cast of characters willing to both challenge her and catch her when she falls, this novel is a clever, moving portrait of a woman and the relationships she thought she could live without.

Today is the International Day of Yoga. This year’s theme, “Yoga for well-being,” is in response to the pandemic’s toll on our physical and mental health. The benefits of Yoga include improved flexibility, fitness, mindfulness and relaxation. The physical aspects of Hatha Yoga such as breathing and the asanas (poses) are a preparation for the ultimate spiritual concerns of Raja Yoga. The Yoga-sutras, or short observations, by Patanjali (ca. 2nd-5th century B.C.) constitute the basic yoga text. See, e.g., “The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali,” https://go.usa.gov/x6EMU. Click on the links below the record for digitized copies.
The Ukiyo-e images by Hokusai Katsushika (1760-1849) likely describe Japanese yoga.

#NationalOceansDay

June 8 is World Oceans Day. The United Nations’ theme for this year is “The Ocean: Life and Livelihoods.” Plankton and algae in the seas provide half of the earth’s oxygen. The oceans supply nutrition, and ocean-based industries furnish livelihoods. Unfortunately, people are taking more from these waters than can be replaced. We have over-harvested big sea fish and destroyed half of the coral reefs. It is time to reconsider our relationship to this enormous part of our planet.
