Reblogging ECLIPSE Magazine – Berry Singh

You probably saw Harper’s piece a while back about my not being able to write much for the blog anymore.  The good news is that things aren’t quite as drastic as I may have led her to think.  It’ll still be fun to get some time for writing, but it probably won’t be any worse than I already am, lol.

Anyway, when I let the boss know I’m still available, she asked me to do a fast one to link to the current issue of Eclipse Magazine.  Their cover story this month, written by Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion, is on Strawberry Singh.  But it’s not the usual fashion piece, like you’d see in the past on her (I’ve done some checking).  Berry is one of the more prominent and outspoken women within Second Life working for preservation of women’s and immigrant rights.  This lets her in for a lot of “criticism” — if you can really call it that.  Please be sure to read the article.

Bread and Roses: The Rising of the Women

I was never planning on making this a political blog, but recent events in American politics are rather pulling posts in that direction, at least for a brief time.  This won’t be a habit, but we wanted to put this in for your thought.

In the light of the world’s Marches on Washington this past Saturday, we’re sharing with you a blog article I found. I hope you will read it all when you hit the link, then take the power we share out into the street and the state house and the ballot box, and continue the struggle both for bread and for roses — the equality of the sexes, the recognition that we are people and not to be marginalized or objectified, the struggle for human dignity for all people, no matter sex or creed or country.

“What the woman who labors wants is the right to live, not simply exist — the right to life as the rich woman has the right to life, and the sun and music and art. You have nothing that the humblest worker has not a right to have also. The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too. Help, you women of privilege, give her the ballot to fight with.”

—Rose Schneiderman, 1912

As we stood circled and gave final thanks to the Gods, spirits, and allies that inspirited the temple, the crows called outside and the sacred space shifted, changing it’s role like a breath held at length finally released.  Where a moment ago stood the Temple of the Morrigan and Her Tribe, was a simple bare hotel room stacked with sacred items and offerings.  …

New World Notes: Donate to Help Children of the Late SLer Brandy Maltas

Ham Au at New World Notes passes on a Facebook post from Seth Regan, seeking donations for the family of Brandy Maltas.  Brandy is another Resident who has recently died of cancer (why is it that cancer has such a high rate of incidence among Second Lifers?), and her children are in straitened means.  You will find a link to Seth’s PayPal account at both links above, if you wish to add to the fund; I’ve put in a contribution just before publishing this.

You wouldn’t believe the tussle I had between finding this on social media on my phone, and trying to get it pulled up on the desk computer so I could give Teyara a little more publicity.  But I finally pulled it off.  I love, love, love this mask and lipstick and hair and everything I see here!!!  I’ll make sure to bookmark this blog, so I can see more of her stuff.

Thanks to Berry Singh

(From Harper:)  As of this writing time, you still have the chance to in most, if not all, of the states today.  If you’re registered and you haven’t gone to the polls yet, get there now!  If nothing else, this gives us the right to bitch in the end.
