MLK Peace Celebration...

I was absent from blogging for many months—on my return I revisited some of my favorites. It was then I formed the grand opinion that Bogsisters was just a bunch of whiney little bitches.

Naturally, I formed this opinion in a vacuum. Through several months of depression, I had not been reading the news. I was unaware of the Roe v. Wade anniversary combined with MLK day. I wanted to write something about MLK day because it has a particular meaning to me, but I could not get into a positive place with the whiney little bitches perspective. It took a few days for me to clear my mind—to realize that there is a lot of (her)history for many women concerning abortion and other hard won and lost rights.

I had to remember the unfair gender, salary and promotion practices I encountered during my work career—some very recently. I had to stop being judgmental about others’ experiences, of which I have no knowledge. I had to open my heart to others’ personal missions. I had to remember that frustration and loss could sound like whining when the reader isn’t listening.

I am glad to be back on track again…

Three passions,[url=]warcraft leveling[/url] simple but [url=]wow lvl[/url] overwhelmingly strong,[url=]wow power level[/url] have governed [url=]wow power level[/url] my life: the longing [url=]wrath of the lich king power leveling[/url] for love, the search for knowledge,[url=]World of warcraft Power Leveling[/url] and unbearable pity [url=]WOTLK Power Leveling[/url] for the suffering [url=]wlk power leveling[/url] of mankind. These passions,[url=]wlk power leveling[/url] like great winds,[url=]age of conan gold[/url] have blown me hither and thither,[url=]cheap aoc gold[/url] in a wayward course,[url=]aoc power leveling[/url] over a great ocean [url=]ffxi gil[/url] of anguish, reaching [url=]final fantasy xi gil[/url] to the very verge of despair. I have sought love, first, because it brings ecstasy - ecstasy so great that I would often have sacrificed [url=]FFXI Gil[/url] all the rest of life for [url=]final fantasy gil[/url] a few hours of this joy. I have sought it, [url=]wow gold[/url], because it relieves loneliness--that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness [url=]dog clothes[/url] looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss.
