I live on a boat and am an #indie / #freelancer who works on games, writes riddles, and does art. Related to this, I'm currently neck-deep in #nanowrimo . I am awkward, self-conscious, and have loads to learn.

So many people think corn fields are scary, but I don't know why.
I'd spent years of my childhood walking among the rows, telling stories & secrets to the proud stems and patient ears.
I never got lost, nothing prowled among them aside from the occasional crow, or determined slug.
And now that my eyes peek above the tallest stalks, I can even more easily spot landmarks.
If only pesky humans would stop invading my territory at night.
Though abandoned, the kittens were lucky.
Nearby bushes provided distractions that drew them away from the lethal wheels of the busy road.
Slow lizards & fat crickets provided easy meals for unskilled hunters.
A forgotten clubhouse, mostly mismatched chairs and an old tent, provided shelter from rain, and puddles aplenty to drink.
Because of these circumstances, these lucky kittens were found in good shape, and adopted into loving homes.

When I was in high school, I made a Saiyan tail out of faux fur and wire and wore it to school like the huge nerd I was. It took a few days before a fellow student snuck up behind me during lunch and tore out the tail, leaving a hole in the ass of my pants for the day. The principal's response: Maybe I shouldn't dress like that.
I learned a lot that day.

There are so few POC in the local boating community that it reminds me of my hometown. I finally saw a black guy working on his boat this afternoon after being at this marina (with probably 150 boats in it) for a month. The boating community skews painfully white and male.
