Link City

79º ~ Below 80º at 9:00 a.m., some kind of miracle, humidity is back on the rise, although no 100 º days predicted this week...just upper 90's...it's been a sweatin' summer

Getting back in the school groove here at the desk of the Kangaroo.  Finding a routine for reading blogs daily or at least every other day.  My stack of books to read beckons me, and Fridays will probably be reserved for drafting, revising, and otherwise WRITING.  Today, what I have to offer are some links for your pleasure, Dear Reader.

Anna Clark is sharing the celebration of  90 years of the 19th Amendment over at her blog, Isak.  It's still stunning to me that women have had the right to vote in this country for fewer than 100 years.  Still, there is hope for civil rights as long as we keep fighting the fight for a true democracy.

Free, Free, Free: Your chance to win a cool journal just by leaving a comment at this post on Drew Myron's blog Off the Page.    Journals are made from copies of "vintage books."

Josh Robins has got a great discussion going about writing about tragedies over at Little Epic Against Oblivion.  Drop by and read what's there and add to the conversation if it moves you.

Finally, Emma Bolden, blogging at A Century of Nerve, has started an AMAZING new project in which we can all participate: The Yawp!

I'm seem to be getting behind in blog reading. Each time I think I am caught up another 20 or so items dump into my inbox!

Back to grading papers :)
