Detachment is a privilege held by people who aren’t targets.

"why are you so emotional about this" - unaffected people

read this. write it on your hand. repeat it to yourself.

so you can never ask me that again

it’s also something done by people who have been victims for so long that they’re blocking it out.

don’t assume it’s because they’re unaffected. don’t assume it’s a privilege. in some cases, it’s the exact opposite.

Polare Maastricht — You don’t have to treat books as sacred objects to appreciate this outpost of Polare Maastricht, a bookshop housed in a centuries-old former Dominican church. Not only does it carry the city’s largest selection of English-language books, it’s something of a sanctuary, with a cafe and quiet reading areas. Dutch design firm Merkx + Girod made dramatic use of the huge space, creating multistory steel shelving. New releases hang out on tables on the ground level.
