The Benefits of a Blogging Break

Myths of the Mirror

Arches National Park, Utah – near my parents’ home.

I’m back from Colorado! Two weeks felt like a month, and though it was wonderful to be off-line, it feels good to be back.

Blogging Breaks seem to work miracles for me in avoiding burnout and reinvigorating my enthusiasm for this time-consuming endeavor. Seeking balance has been an ongoing challenge as my blog grows and worldwide friendships form with people I care about. It doesn’t help that there’s wonderful content all over blogland, too. It’s hard to look away.

A couple years ago, I tried taking weekends off from the blog, and it didn’t work. Notifications amassed, and I spent my Mondays staring at the laptop until my eyeballs shriveled. Days off due to other commitments had similar results – a constant stream of busy-ness of one type or another and days of playing catch-up. My writing time suffered, and my…

Hey Lollygagger

aYoKa

Stop mooning about

Even the moon goes around

Busy as the bee

Stop  loafing around

Life bakes a loaf of those

Who are indolent

Stop idling your mind

Carving for your hands

A recipe for  regret

 Stop moping around

You are the goddess

Of fortune and failures

Stop lounging away

Why pay more tariffs

To the demons of delay

Iranian supreme leader talking about gender inequality!!!!

What an uneducated excuse for a man.
Iran this week celebrated its National Women’s and Mothers’ Dayand Ayatollah Khamenei held forth on his demented view of the ideal Islamic women. Khamenei denounced the very concept of women’s rights and gender equality as a Western plot against all women.
Khamenei accused Israel and the West for advancing notions of equality , which promotes earthly pleasures and the exploration of women. It appears that equality is all a“Zionist conspiracy.” Of course, such views would normally be viewed as perfectly insane but this is the religious head of Iran.

Khamenei warned that “These aberrant and neglectful people humiliate the role of a housewife while a housewife is actually in charge of raising and educating the most valuable product, which is a human being. . . unfortunately, sometimes inside the country and in some Islamic environments, tasks and expectations are ascribed to women that…

What Iranian women have to deal with in my country. This makes me feel disgusted. (Part 1/2)

A new social media campaign against a law which forces women to wear a headscarf is gaining momentum in Iran.

Using the hashtag #whitewednesdays, citizens have been posting pictures and videos of themselves wearing white headscarves or pieces of white clothing as symbols of protest.

The idea is the brainchild of Masih Alinejad, founder of My Stealthy Freedom, an online movement opposed to the mandatory dress code.

Before the 1979 Islamic revolution many Iranian women wore Western-style outfits, including miniskirts and short-sleeved tops, but this all changed when the late Ayatollah Khomeini came to power.

Women were not only forced to cover their hair in line with a strict interpretation of Islamic law on modesty, but also to stop using make-up and to start wearing knee-length manteaus. More than…

Freedom Of Expression In Iran

Constitutional provisions and laws restrict what can be covered in the press and fail to provide protections for journalists. The authorities regularly invoke vaguely worded laws to criminalize dissenting opinions.

Article 24 of the constitution guarantees freedom of the press, but with a broad exception for content that is deemed “detrimental to the fundamental principles of Islam or the rights of the public.” The Press Law, first drafted in 1986 and amended in 2000, states that “publications and news media shall enjoy freedom of expression provided what they publish does not violate Islamic principles of the civil code.” Article 3 of the law states, “The press have the right to publish the opinions, constructive criticisms, suggestions and explanations of individuals and government officials for public information while duly observing the Islamic teachings and the best interest of the community.”

Article 500 of the penal code states that anyone who undertakes…
