Margaret Atwood is one of my heroes because she uses her reputation and notoriety as a renowned writer and poet, to discuss issue regarding the survival the planet.




Both videos are posted with my friend Susan in mind but this next one, especially. She is much in my thoughts.

  1. An excellent author, I have read most of her works I think.

    I love the crow and the kitten. I hope they remained inseparable when kitten became a cat

  4. Thank you for this. I have read some of her books, but know nothing about her as a person.

    The cat and crow snip is amazing!

  10. I admire Margaret very much too. The other day I went to a reading from a author who can learn a lot from Margaret. The individual in question said something heartless to a reader. Later that night I was discussing (or maybe arguing) with friends, saying that I would never buy one of the person's books again. My friends said I was overeating. I still don't think I was.

    Those who have a voice with power, specially those whose 'power' has been given by their audience, have a responsibility with society. Not all of them need to be wonderful like Margaret, but at least they need to try not to hurt others with their words.

    Oops, sorry for the comment-jacking. I just feel very strongly about this.

  11. Magaly - no worries about "comment hijacking" here! I love comments and yours absolutely supports my own feelings on artists who show social and environmental responsibility.

    As for the unkind comment from the author you mention toward one of his readers - if you felt what you felt, can you imagine how the person who was stung was left feeling? Kindness in everyday matters is a pretty easy thing to pull off.

    Thank you for your comment. I'm looking forward to taking a look at your blog.
