I have been saving this for video for a special occasion, and it seems right for #1000Speak day. It is about mortality, and failings, is how I read it.
My post is over at the personal blog. If you have a compassion post to add to the linky and you don’t want to scroll to the bottom of of an 1800-word post about nonviolence, you can add your link below. Here are the Linky hosts I know about, and I have not checked them all to see if they have the linky up or what else they have posted since the linky went live.
If you are looking for Melissa’s Arrow review, scroll down. I am monkeying around with the schedule again, as I am wont to do.
I heard this song on a tv commercial a few days ago. Had no idea it was written by Roger Miller. Found this cover. Dude has a smooth voice, and he knows his banjo. The visual part is perfectly adequate, but a little fuzzy and the lighting is not the best. In other words, “artistic.” I like.
I’m hosting the #WeekendCoffeeShare this week, so my coffee post will be at the Monster rather than my own blog.
My #1000Speak post is done and in the queue at Just Gene’O. Since I am not doing a coffee post there this week, I’ll treat you to an excerpt tomorrow instead 😀 (Tell me I’m not good!)
John and Yoko at Madison Square Garden in 1972. The intro is rough, and the quality is uneven. This is the YouTube version of old vinyl. Worth watching.John with the purple glasses and the sideburns is nearly always worth watching.
Plans have shifted this week, because 1000 Voices Speaking For Compassion happened and I decided to do what I could to give it a boost. You weekend readers can catch up on that drama at Just Gene’O. And seriously. There is a story there worth telling.
We’re starting a long run of contributor posts next week, and Diana will have something extra-special for you tomorrow concerning a certain television series we all love.
Weekend Music moves to Saturdays next week to make way for Arrow, because we are running that one on Friday mornings, and Weekend music just does as well on Saturdays as a single photo feature.
Updated: The publication date is Feb. 20. The hashtag to use if you want to help this along is #1000Speak. (01/13)
I’ll make this quick. I’ve signed on to a project to get 1,000 bloggers to write about compassion and publish the pieces all on the same day. You are invited. The posting date has not been set and I have no idea how long it will take to find the 1K bloggers.
I already have my post idea. Once the date is set, I will make a decision about whether I can deliver or not. The writing schedule is TIGHT right now. Even if I can’t join in with a post, I’m giving this as much social media support as I can manage. There will be a hashtag, I am sure. And you know how much I love some hashtags. 😀
