I’m on my deck under the neighbour’s oak tree. I have a difficult relationship with this tree. When I moved in in the fall, I raked its leaves. Everyday I sweep its dropping off my deck. Even as I sit here, it every now & then threatens me with an acorn travelling at high speed.
But today, with the temperature headed to 32 degrees, I sit comfortably in its shade, listening to birds that I can’t see but know are in its branches. Today, I love this tree. #smallstories
I drove to the store today and realized that it was the first time in 3? weeks that I'd driven.
It felt strange. A good strange. Like driving is something that I should try to *not* do more. #smallstories
I decided to look into the Xprize competition (the reason why is a story for another day), but the site says about one of the board members: "He is also the Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Singularity University" which makes me think that the robots really are already in charge having a wonderful time mocking us.
@lightweight Agreed and look forward to reading. But could not hit the “like button” on this one.
@benhamill I have no objection to having ice cream with wine, except plane is boarding and there is no ice cream nearby. Promise to get ice cream (and perhaps more wine) as soon as the plane lands.
@benhamill I went straight to wine...

Earlier toot, see thread:
Please boost this if you have a moment! These are two of the best introductory resources I've found:
1) self-advocacy and "social model" focused (while not emphasizing "impairment" as "opposite of disabled")
2) self-dx and questioning inclusive, which is *really* important for women, POC, trans and enby folks, and people in the school system pre-1990s
3) animation version is helpful for people who have difficulties with text
Thank you! 12 more hours... I will make it...
No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.
You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.
It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.
