February Just Posts

This month's Roundtable reminds me of the first bloom after a long winter. So many vibrant voices here this month talking about so many different things, from human rights to the power of the written word to governmental malpractices and healthcare and bigotry and abuse. Writing means nothing has to go silent. Writing means we are awake. Writing means change. Change means everything. It's up to us. I'd originally had more to say than this but after reflection, it's all that matters in the end. Writing. Doing. Change.

February Readers

Don't forget to stop by Mad's and Su's to see what they've cooked up. We're saving a plate for Hel who's away from the table this month tending to the birth and newness of her little puppies. If this is new to you we host the Just Post Roundtable every month on the 10th and all are welcome.

As always, an honor to participate and an honor to be awarded! :)

Mad Hatter said...

Look at them all! Jen you were busy pulling these together. Don't let the alphabetization fool you folks. This month, the work was all Jen's...except the alphabetization. Su, as it turns out, has closet librarian tendencies. He, he. Jen, you are outnumbered.

Thank you so much!

Most of these are new reading for me this month. A lot of my regular reads I found over the past year through their inclusion in a Just Post Roundtable, so this is like a big present just waiting for me to unwrap.

The quick snack I managed to grab of my plate is sustaining me through Freud and his slightly ridiculous theory.

Although it is possible that I'm devaluing
him because of my all consuming penis envy.

Kyla said...

Yeah. This is awesome.

And I never, in a million years thought I'd be on that list. Funny, eh? I didn't think I had it in me. I guess you never know.

Congrats to all the Just Posts! Can't wait to start reading...

Thanks for the shout-out, Jen! I'm honored to be included among so many folks trying to nurture more justice in the world. I look forward to checking out all the other posts highlighted.

Attila The Mom said...

Writing. Doing. Change.


I'm off to read!

Changing the world, one word at a time. Thank you for doing this.

Angela said...

I, too, never thought I'd be on this list. I am literally blushing...thank you so much! Yay!

alejna said...

What a beautiful list. I have been working my way through all the incredible posts. (Happily, I have already read quite a few.) I'm only about half way through, but I am (as usual) feeling angry, sad, empowered and motivated all at once. (Unfortunately though, what I am supposed to be doing is work for my job...)

carrie said...

A beautiful and impressive list!

Kevin said...

Thanks for the nod on my post. I am going to get a promo post up on my blog soon. I have just been falling so far behind. I am hoping to get it out tomorrow afternoon.

Great job once again.
