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?

@lauraritchie Super! Glad to be back in here and yeah timeline is sorted. :)

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.

so. i made an site. which makes it real, right?

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!


@ShorterPearson @clhendricksbc @sundilu you're the best Chuck - thanks for your thoughts :)

Thoughts and hugs to your peeps and others with all the fear!

@clhendricksbc @sundilu yeah I'm doubting I'll be affected by this, but who knows how far reaching and for how long they will go.

Especially with news that they may search people's SM accounts and the like.

But yeah, I am privileged, white, and educated. Not too much to fear.

Either way, I will do what I can to help though :)

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 :)

@actualham @ShorterPearson @katebowles @sundilu I grew up with party line phone calls - we had one line for about a dozen houses and the number/sequence of rings on the line determined whose house was being rung.

That's old school SM ?

@sundilu even funnier is that we're sitting right across from each other in a coffee shop :|

@katebowles @actualham

I think you'll be okay too Robin - I have thought about it as well, but am not brave enough yet.

Speaking of, we had guests over the holidays and my whole SM life really got derailed. I guess because we have so few peeps locally that we hang with SM is often our way to socialize.

Anywho, its great to be back on and see peeps here again. Happy holidays Kate :) and you too Actual ;)
