I Lost the Day


The Band, from the The Last Waltz, a documentary of their farewell concert directed by Martin Scorsese. I find the song quite powerful.

Here’s a first look at my improved personal blog, Just Gene’O. It needs an About page and I have to change a lot of social media links before it’s ready, but it’s substantially finished and I’d love to have some feedback on the header/background images and the design.

I’d planned to write a coffee post this afternoon, but I had to go out for a couple of hours and it’s getting late, so I’m just going to put most of what I would have said in that one into the Monday post.

You’ll want to stop by tomorrow if you’re collaborating with me on projects or interacting with me across social media. I’ll have a preview of the next couple of months here and important information about my ongoing social media reorganization.

Feminist Friday Preview

Thanks to everyone who’s stopped by this week. It’s certainly been a wild one. I hope you’ve been entertained, and that you know me a little better today than you did when the week started.

I have a post scheduled for 9 a.m. central tomorrow. I’ll tell you the story of how I met one of my favorite bloggers, and leave you with a question or two which I hope will prompt a discussion of feminism and activism. The post is illustrated with images from Part Time Monster’s Feminist board on Pinterest.

If you’ve never commented here, and you want to be a part, you have until about 9:30 in the morning to post your first comment so that I can put it through and you’ll be able to comment without the first one being held while I’m at work.

This song doesn’t have anything to do with feminism. I just like it. It’s from one of my favorite concerts, and I read it as an anthem of hope. If the discussion goes as well, I might not have the weekend music post until Saturday, so enjoy!

I have a note about a new Follow Friday strategy I’m trying on Twitter tomorrow at The Writing Catalog, and it also includes a music video.
