@bryanalexander I don't think of Mastodon in terms of benefits. It's a community I can chat with. It is fluid and evolving. Sometimes there's a lot of activity; sometimes there's none. I like that the people here aren't trying to sell me things. I like that it's relaxed.

@bryanalexander I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner. I'm glad you came back to take another look ;)

I'm sorry too that I missed it. But I really like Stephen's "community I can chat with".

I've found community I think with, at a scale I can live with.

@katebowles @bryanalexander @Downes @Tdorey The occasionally missing things and then finding them is part of being here (or being allowed to not be here while life/or stuff takes over)

I genuinely value the contribution and communication that comes now or in a month.

The point is:

You found it.

@lauraritchie @katebowles

A community I can think with. At a scale I can live with. A place where being away is noticed, but understood and accepted. A space to restore and recharge, to remember and reflect on the things that really matter.

(Feeling very thankful right now. 🌻 )

@bryanalexander «Small is beautiful» works. Although to me it often feels more like «slow is beautiful». Kinda like the social media equivalent to slow food. @lauraritchie @katebowles @Downes @Tdorey

@fgraver Interesting. I'll look for that speed difference.
Perhaps smaller quantity leads to that qualitative shift.
