Feminist Friday | Queer Values and Change

I didn’t find this in time to reblog it last Friday, so I decided to save it for today. I never really thought much about “queer heterosexuality” until I read this, but I will say that the creativity, flexibility, and negotiation of roles she’s referring to here are the things that make intimate relationships worthwhile. I agree with the argument, and I’m glad to have this insight into a perspective other than my own. It’s a very thoughtful and well-argued post.

I’m also pleased to see my friend Alva making some progress with her blog, which I can’t recommend highly enough.

Music

– This is why music is a real passion for me, rather than simply a pastime.

A Pondering Mind

Once upon a time, wasn’t singing a part of everyday life as much as talking, physical exercise, and religion? Our distant ancestors, wherever they were in this world, sang while pounding grain, paddling canoes, or walking long journeys. Can we begin to make our lives once more all of a piece? Finding the right songs and singing them over and over is a way to start. And when one person taps out a beat, while another leads into the melody, or when three people discover a harmony they never knew existed, or a crowd joins in on a chorus as though to raise the ceiling a few feet higher, then they also know there is hope for the world.
