This week, it feels prophetic.
@libbyking- I updated Margaret's equipment, probably 25 yrs ago. See my blog on the subject. Judyblume.com/blog.php (Sept 1,'11) Thanks.

"Across the globe women are calling out god for approving a fundamental evolutionary design fault when not equipping us with Mooncups from the outset."
"And I felt it like my guts had become a dusty vacuum cleaner bag; disturbingly empty and yet full of barren problems and waste."
"Bradbury didn’t just extrapolate the evolution of gadgetry; he foresaw how it would stunt and deform our psyches."And this gem to end:
"It is thanks to Ray Bradbury that I understand this world I grew into for what it is: a dystopian future. And it is thanks to him that we know how to conduct ourselves in such a world: arm yourself with books. Assassinate your television. Go for walks, and talk with your neighbors. Cherish beauty; defend it with your life. Become a Martian."Fuck yeah! I've always said that in dystopian fiction the good people are with the freaks or the freaks are the good people. I think there is a natural connection with cabaret through this angle because the best cabaret performers are the freaks - just the way it is. Got a good voice? Brilliant. Not a freak? Too bad, you're probably not gonna cut it. I have an article in me that explains it but there are many things in the queue before it will be freed.
|I think this is pretty good advice for all people at all times.|
it's very that a book becomes the last word on its subject matter and I think this is one of those books. It's very difficult to imagine sitting down and saying, 'I'm gonna write a dystopian novel about totalit... Oh, wait, no - no point.' There's no need for another ever because this has the whole lot.I was totally astounded!
"Unlike most people, Jane Eyre never died. Jane was blessed with eternal life because she was once unlovable and then, impossibly, loved. When Rochester declares his ardour, Jane achieves the impossible: she becomes as alive in the twenty-first century as she was in the eighteenth. She makes herself live forever: an extraordinary feat for a delightful but nonetheless, rather ordinary, girl."Another small part from the same piece is also on this blog under the title of A Bowl Half Full.
