something in the way she moves

A Perfect Post - December
Sometimes a woman is so alluring, so brilliant, so perfectly lovely that she stops you in your tracks, and you find yourself coyly turning your head to catch just one more glimpse. The woman of my affection is Mad of Under the Mad Hat and her (in some circles famous) social justice wedding post which made me laugh, made me cry, and also made the world feel a bit smaller and a lot more hopeful. The real beauty of her post is that it launched the ongoing gift of the Just Post awards, a brainchild/wedding present of Mad's which will allow all of us to keep our planet in the forefront of our consciousness all year long.

Hat's off, Mad...not only for a Perfect Post but for the start of something incredibly powerful. And the best part is her gift is open to everyone - so if this is new to you click on over to the Just Post link and check it out (and join us).

And if I may crowd the spotlight for a brief moment, the ever-generous and lovely Michelle over at scribbit was kind enough to give my mangoes-roasting post a perfect post nod, which was surprising and wonderful and I thank you very much for thinking of me.

And of course, many thanks to the two phenomenal women who allow all of us to discover and share each others' excellent writing all year long. Bravo, both of you. Talk about turning two do it each and every month.

Sadly, these days it feels as if I move more like a granny than a newish mom. Oh well.

Thanks for this Jen. It is lovely and, of course, would never have been done without your sense of whimsy and social insight.

Congrats on your Perfect Post award and your perfect choice for post perfect awardee. I'm dizzy now!

Mad rocks! You post totally deserved that nod. If I'd had my wits, I would have seconded it, rather than simply linking to it from my blog.

Congrats to you, and I'll get over to the Mad Hatter to say same. :)
