i made a snow diorama to share with you

But when I checked Twitter [yes, I went there] for information on a possible vigil being held yesterday, it turns out vigils are being held all over the world for Squirrel Hill...And that heartens me.

Between the shooting in Pittsburgh, the racially-motivated murders in Kentucky, and the election of extreme right-wing candidate Bolsonaro, this was a particularly dark weekend, even with all the other troublesome things that have happened recently.

Deactivated my Twitter account in June Show more
I deactivated my Twitter account on June 21st, well before #Deactiday --I hadn't known that deactivated accounts are deleted after 30 days and soon I lost track of the date I had deactivated. With the recent exodus from Twitter Mastodon, I checked my Twitter archive to check the exact date of my deactivation and realized that my account on Twitter is now gone for good--and I'm ok with that. I'm not really missing it.
