This blog is an eclectic collection of interesting things I've seen and heard on Tumblr, the rest of the web, and beyond. Its name is taken from this quote by Dinah Craik:

"Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."
