The cartoonist of Dykes to Watch Out For, Fun Home, and Are You My Mother? tells us how she got started. Interview by Brodie. Collage by Ruby A.
Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez.
- Gabriel García Márquez (March 6, 1927-April 17th, 2014)
[human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves]
Because I’m currently in a translation course, here’s how I would translate the quotation:
"Humans aren’t born once and for all on the day their mother’s give life to them, rather life obligates them to give birth to themselves over and over again."
Thin section of dunite under XPL.
Dunite is a type of peridotite that contains over 90% olivine and may either be found in ophiolitic complexes or xenoliths in basalt lavas.
Note the ‘bubble’ texture of the vibrant birefringent olivine grains at the top and bottom of the image, and the serpentine (gray and white) and talc (high pastel birefringence) running through the center of the image.
