Pray to the Moon when She is round,
Luck with you will then abound,
What you seek for shall be found
On the sea or solid ground.

Here's to All the Women

Here's to all the Women.
"Vintage Dancers" by SolStock of deviantART.
(She is also the creatrix of this blog's background image.)

I have saved this song's lyrics for a year now -- to be shared in honour of this very day, in honour of all the Women, everywhere. 
Thanks to Hubby for reminding me with his own techno-daddy honourings. 

splinter by Ani diFranco
something about this landscape just don’t feel right
hyper air-conditioned and lit up all night
like we just gotta see how comfortable
comfortable can get
like we can’t even bring ourselves to sweat
sweat in the summer, shiver in the winter
just enough to know that we’re alive
watch out for that tv
it’s full of splinters
and remember you can always go outside
(really really really far outside)
some might call it conservation
some might call it common sense
and maybe it’s because i am libra
but i say balance balance balance balance
i say balance balance balance balance
who put all this stuff in my apartment?
who put all this ice in my drink?
who put the poison in the atmosphere?
who put the poison in the way i think?
women won’t you be our windows?
women who bleed and bleed and bleed
women who swell with the tide
women who change when the wind blows
show us we are connected to everything
show us we are not separate from everything
so here’s to the trials of living
here’s to feeling our share of pain
all the way from childbirth to dying
here’s to being connected to everything
here’s to staying connected to everything

A unique song and fitting for this day.

The picture is a match and I love your blog background.

here's to being connected

women are windows
we need to open up
we need to speak up.

Thank you for sharing.
