I’ve had a couple days away from my computer, really away from it.  I went to MA Dance training after my classes this week, then spend the weekend with Liz and Laura.  Back to the usual updates [maybe a podcast this week finally?]

From Feministing: “NYU grad Elly Park, made an amazing film called Sea Woman about a community of women in South Korea who have made their living for generations by diving (no scuba gear!) for precious metals. The fact that they were the breadwinners in their families gave them societal power, but as this area because more touristy, and the men in the families began working in hotels and cafes, the power dynamic shifted. Fascinating stuff. Here’s an eight minute excerpt of Elly’s movie:”

And now some comments on President Obama’s speech [I will never get tired of saying PRESIDENT OBAMA]:
