Difficult day again with palpitations and anxiety but I do seem to be able to meditate more easily on the stimulants and I have the energy for it, even whilst having to deal with the anxiety symptoms, tight chest etc. I will try to do that each morning now and see if that has a good knock-on effect.

I'm watching GBBO. Paul's existence gives me anxiety. He's like the distilled essence of my approval/rejection complex & authoritarian terror. I think if I had to be in the same room as him I would simply die.

by 'this bee' i mean more or less the bottom drawing! Trying to use my own photos for reference now..

Hope I can settle down enough to do some drawing today, heart is hammering & stimulants doing the opposite of what they're supposed to at the moment. If I don't draw/do a specific thing for a while it's so hard to start it again! Hoping to do a mixed media rendering of this bee and record it, as warm up before I get back into my commissions!

The angel of death is an angel to befriend

It doesnt come to you in anger, doesn't decide when it's time, is looking out for your path; when you will enter peace

On the beach of eternity
Hold a seashell up to your ear
hear the reflected sound of the waves
A perfect golden spiral,
You are already inside

@paralithode 's hard drive has corrupted and his phone battery has died too. Seems like technology always goes all at once! We need to replace the hard drive, try to recover the data & sort out the way we store & back up our stuff as we've been lacksadaisical about it. Especially me, the thought of all my hard drives full of horribly organised previous lives is giving me anxiety.

Comics arrived! Looks pretty good! The text is a bit big on some of the pages but that's not terrible. (Attention to detail is not going on my CV). One of the sticker designs is missing too so I need to sort that out. I like the badge a lot better than I thought I would!

Ahh. Most CWs don't really apply to me, I'll generally choose to read/see things with a CW, even things which have affected me directly, but there's one theme which I find really viscerally upsetting & I'm so glad that people use CWs here <3 <3 <3

I've already boosted this but this is a really good article and well worth reading! It's a well-written overview of the best-known examples of trans people in medieval Europe.

Most importantly, it categorically answers the question of whether there were trans people in medieval Europe (yes). If y'all don't I'm going to go through some refinements/issues with the article in a thread I'll try to keep nice and short.

Was making a tin foil hat at 4am. (I couldn't sleep and was wondering if I could use foil as the understructure to make paper clay animal skull masks)

I just found out the host of the Sleep With me podcast doesn't look like father christmas and I can't believe it.

I saw an ad for a consumer electronics neurofeedback device designed to aid with meditation the other day. I was reading about neurofeedback a while ago and about people building their own devices and I'm pretty interested in getting one! It's an EEG which plays sounds that get louder or quieter. I think you can also look at the waveform graph afterwards.

I just found a garden centre with a reptile house, tropical bird walk, butterfly house and meerkats really close to our house!! Hopefully I can take photos to use as reference!

Facebook is terrible but it's at least allowed us to thoroughly and conclusively debunk the cultural myth that wisdom comes with age

omg I'm so sleepy haha. I woke up long enough to finish some commission sketches and send them to my dad's friend (!) at least. One of them is a motorbike 9__9 but actually it might be fun. it'll be quite abstract because it's the splooshy ink+watercolour style and because the picture I'm working from is the tiniest lowest quality thing ever. Which is maybe good because I don't really want to draw detailed motorbike parts.
