Meditations for Queer Femmes – MLK Day Special

I’ll be singing tonight in our town’s MLK Day Celebration, and earlier today received the following email from my 86-year old mum:

Congratulations on your participation in the MLK observances!    He was such a wonderful person, whose life ended much too soon.       Love from yr mom

Today, let’s listen, love, learn, remain vigilent but make time for family and celebration and song!

MLK Day Special: Rediscovered 1964 King Speech on Civil Rights, Segregation & Apartheid South Africa

Every Monday, I offer a Meditation for Queer Femmes in the spirit of my maternal grandmother, Mimi, who was fabulous, kind, and wise and from whom I inherited her Meditations for Women.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”)
