Dear colleagues,

On the eve of summer as vacation time approaches, reading material comes into demand. The international psychoanalytic website provides us with the perfect flow of uninterrupted, timely and updated posts to enhance our reading experience.

I hope that this week will give you an interesting preview of summer issues to come. Following the usual format, my choices will be followed by a list of the entire contents for this week.

My personal choices this week are:

1) I want to make a special mention of the post on the Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net. As you know most of the “labor” is donated by those dedicated to bring us into the 21st century, but there is still a need for contributions to keep us going. Read the rest of this post »

A Yiddishkayt of folk air
to prick the heart and pour
warm honey at the sight
of things that touch the cockles?
If that’s the stuff we celebrate
