Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul. - Joyce Carol Oates

Haven't been very productive lately, I think because I just have too much I want to be doing. Think some of it at least is exhaustion from a couple of weeks of exciting presentations/events and just feeling very happy I'm finally in a place (mentally and environmentally) where I can express myself and support neurodivergent and queer communities without being afraid. I hope things keep going like this.

Thanks to my really great on-campus office of Indigenization, I got to have a Cree elder come to my class and talk about his traditional knowledge of astronomy.

It was really powerful to listen to him talk about his connection to the sky. Particuarly his view of the aurora: the Cree term for them translates to "the relatives are dancing." Seeing aurorae is a truly happy thing: like seeing your long-gone relatives joyously dancing again.

I'm obsessed with witch-hazel this week. I read about it and then when I was at the local native plant nursery I found out we have a native one. I am so excited for it to grow I almost want to fast forward time haha.

Anytime anyone talks about #decentralization based on #blockchain and web3.0, all i want is to remind them that #fediverse exists and is already doing that. The problem is that people dont know about the fediverse and arent educated enough to leave their corporate platforms, given that they don't know why they should leave the (toxic) cushion of their platforms.

The thing is, I *like* work. I like the feeling of getting something done, something fixed, or someone helped. But I like it most when that work matters more than just to line the pockets of those above me, or to ensure my survival for another two weeks.

If capitalism were to vanish tomorrow, what would I do?

Probably grab my toolbox and see who needs help that day.

Happy that my Nextcloud is back in my basement. That's the place where it belongs. Always remember, there is no cloud, just other people's computer. #nextcloud #selfhosting #digitalsovereignty

Today’s card is the Nine of Swords - anxiety, hopelessness, exhaustion. If your worries are keeping you awake at night and it’s all getting too much then remember it’s okay to ask for help. Talk to someone you trust, if you can, and try to focus on the future. You’ll get through this

Guardian article "Greens propose shutting down all Victorian coal-fired power plants by 2030" became much less exciting once I realised it was about Australia.
