It's been a beautiful day here,























...far too nice to sit hunched in front of the computer. Now that the evening has arrived, I want to get back to a very good book I'm reading, so blogging will have to wait until tomorrow. Please return then for a Madini post, or possibly some thoughts on outdoor sex. Meanwhile, here's some good stuff that deserves your attention:

If you are not a regular visitor to Mary's blog, Tea, Sympathy and Perfume, you may have missed her launch of a second site devoted to her poetry, What the Moon Saw. Mary's work is beautiful and passionate. I'm so glad she's sharing it with us.

Jaime, aka jmcleod76, is offering up smart, funny perfume reviews from a genderqueer perspective at Smells like Boi. Go check 'em out.

Neil Robertson's blog, The Bleeding Heart Show, has been on my blogroll for quite a while, but Neil's been doing some especially fine posts lately, and he made the longlist for the 2009 Orwell Prize. If you haven't been reading him, now's a good time to start.

I recently discovered a very good feminist blog based in New Zealand, The Hand Mirror. It's got a slew of contributors and there's always a new post. They cover it all, from cupcakes to abortion.

Thanks for the shout-out, Maria.

Outdoor sex ... Yay, can't wait! (For the post, I mean. Still a little too cold here for the real thing).

Will you tell us what you're reading?

Can't you guess, Margaret? The Adina Hoffman book about Taha Muhammad Ali. I think I may blog about it. (Sorry to be so predictable.)

J, what do you mean, "too cold?" I thought you Mainers were tough.

Maria, thank you for the mention. :)

ROTFL...Madini, or outdoor sex...how often have I had to choose between the two... ;)

Of course, on a good day, you get both...
