i haven't posted a lot of art lately because it didn't feel like a good time and also due to personal mental health reasons

but here's a skona posing with her/their kashye (the spectral chain, derived from the pomo word for rope, "kashi")

@hope @moonwater holy crap lol this whole thing is so wild

it's crazy to think that the conclusion that people got from "when something is neglected, the things around it are seen as worthy of neglect as well" and tried to solve it with criminalizing poverty instead of doing things for the community, like community programs, creating art and revitalizing public spaces what the fuck lmao

Is anyone else reading “The End of Policing?” Can someone explain broken-windows policing to me? I don’t quite get it from the book

@ArtistMarciaX deserves a steady wage of fair pay from the fediverse for daring to exist here and say it how it is while facing all the bullying and abuse sent their way, before we even begin to mention the spiteful upsetting subtoots from people that really should know better.

The bosses never want the employees to talk money. That's because they play favorites.

Talk money with your peers. Be open and honest.

The money taboo is a tool of the oligarchy.

Struggling with being able to pass as a white cis-het dude while knowing I'm non-binary inside, especially when sometimes I'm OK with being a guy, and other times not so much. Feeling are complicated, and being raised male, I don't know what to do with them a lot of the time...

tech nostalgia 

I learned so much (almost all I know) from HOWTO files in bright monospace against a black VGA terminal. the occasional info file.

I kind of miss the, dunno, design consistency of it, the to-the-pointness of the interface. now when learning new tech I go to… online tutorials I guess? often proprietary q&a sites for specific problems. it’s just got a wholly different feel to it and I know, change is good, but a girl is allowed to feel nostalgic.

Good news for tidalpunks 

@solarpunkgnome Love this ~ it's so true that the resiliency of wildlife and the planet is amazing, we let up for one moment and Mother Nature takes a deep breath to grow

meta, getting real for a sec 

even if every single part of being a leftist, every single small thing we can do to participate and make the community happier and safer was 100% simple and 100% accessible for people of all different needs, there's just too many for us all to do them all 100% of the time??
