February had lots of neat days in it, though I spent quite a few of them ignoring the internet. A couple of small internet vacations helped me be more productive and active in other areas of my life. There’ll be one a week long in March, too, for a family vacation.
But that doesn’t mean the Year of Celebration ends or gets put on hold.
March begins with Harry Belafonte Day. Musician, actor, activist, Harry Belafonte sticks out in my mind first for an episode of the Muppet Show, the finale for which he sang “Turn the World Around” which, aside from being one of my favourite songs in any genre, eventually served as the inspiration for a story that almost qualifies as a novel. Mr. Belafonte turns 86 today, and he still speaks in public, arguing for a better, brighter future. Here’s a recent sample: http://www.democracynow.org/2013/2/18/we_must_unleash_radical_thought_harry.
There’s other stuff coming up, too. Have a look at what I’m celebrating and join me, or pick some of your own.
