What are some good hashtags to add as pinned columns?

is one I recommend, to see a constant stream of new people saying who they are and what they are about.

Currently is a good one.

Any others?

Thought I would jump back in for a while and see how peeps have been over here.

Last several months moving and such has created a lot of busy work and its been hard to keep up with all the things.

I remember the very early days here as being fruitful and thoughtful and just full in general.

Has this space been as great as it was (way) back then?

Also, what up with my home feed having absolutely nothing in it?

Hugs and such soon.

I've posted this in some other spaces, but thought I would throw it out here as well. Our band "GlassPocket" recently recorded new songs and for one of them we are trying to collect as many photos and videos from protests from all over the world. Please do share yours and get others to add.

Put your name as file name if you want it in the thank yous.

Hugs and love all!

I am scared.

As a Canadian on a work visa in US, I am scared that the next time I leave they might not let me back in. My lovely wife @sundilu is an American from NM and we know so many lovely people here, but this climate is so stressful and as I express my ways to here and on SM, I'm worried a border guard will see my efforts and reject me.

And I'm a middle aged white guy with a decent education - am HORRIFIED for ALL of the people less privileged than I.

Hugs and love to you all!

Mastodon seems like an ideal place to organize resistance; set up an instance for it and get some organizers talking to each other semi-privately @Gargron

Guessing there aren't a lot of people on cause you're out at - I love you all and respect your fight.

Be strong and enjoy your day, wherever your feet and hearts take you!

Just watch the PE continue to gaslight everyone.

Its horrifying and sad.

And I really need to do something about it, but don't know what/where that something is.

Suggestions welcome :)

@lauraritchie @Gargron I just wanted to send encouragement too. We're all used to big corporate platforms that stay open 24/7, and in return for that they use and sell all of our labour. We pay a high price for the appearance of stability, which is really just exploitation.

The work you do here is really appreciated. So glad you are OK, and lovely that it's back.

I was surprised how much I worried about it, in a human way.

Don't ask an artist about their favorite colors unless you're ready to listen.

Reading John Berger's collection of short essays of art criticism, I just came across this:

"What the painting by Bosch does is to remind us -- if prophecies can be called reminders -- that the first step towards building an alternative world must be a refusal of the world-picture implanted in our minds and all the false promises used everywhere to justify and idealise the delinquent and insatiable need to sell. Another space is vitally necessary.”

(John Berger, The Shape of a Pocket)

Listening to Chinawoman "Party Girl" as I type this.

My thoughts about all these things: how amazing are our affordances? And our privileges? Our others? Our networks of power?

Is this a poem? A Call To Action?

I wish I effing knew what to do.

This world seems to sadly have met dystopian nightmares.

Yet sadly, again, ok for a white guy.

I wish my power/privilege could be donated to the "others." I hope I find a way to punch through the wall(s).
