Since I've been working two jobs, I haven't been as "active" blogging, poeming, editing/publishing, and I'm so amazed by and grateful for bloggers like Barbara who have been doing the blogging thing for YEARS now, and how they just continue to write thoughtful, considered posts day after day, week after week. They just put it out there -- for all us -- month after month. Some people love to snark and say that blogging is all narcissistic navel-gazing, but the kind of work that Barbara does on her blog is, like, the OPPOSITE. It's activism. It's a gift.
