Tweaked my back, but discovered there’s a new Harry Potter themed match 3 game in Apple Arcade. So, could be worse. (Find me in the Calm Blue Ocean club, calmly waiting for the heat pad to do its magic.)

Happy Discardia!

Take a few minutes to discard the the feeling in your body of carrying worries about the past and future.

Plant your feet on the ground, breathe deep and slow three times in and out, and feel yourself right here, where you are right now, with what is immediately around you. That's all you need to deal with in this moment.

You have this moment available to you to feel solid underfoot and to feel your body breathing. You're OK.

Do this as often as you want.

"studies have shown that women (and nonbinary folks) are over-mentored, but under-sponsored." Sponsoring is about "fighting to get somebody a promotion, mentioning their name in an appointments meeting, etc..."

Without any of his fans knowing he was ill, Chadwick Boseman gave us many of the greatest turns of Black performance in film, including one of the most beloved and iconic Black superheroes of our present time: a king, a leader, trying to make a better world.

I'm suddenly imagining Mount Doom as a tourist attraction, with tram cars going up to the top where orcs sell gold-plated rings for people to throw into the Cracks of Doom. "Make a wish and throw your ring, and something precious it will bring."

I wrote up a little post about dipping your toes into Dwarven Forge miniature terrain, complete with examples of how you might approach becoming a backer in one of their Kickstarters at budgets starting at $100.

People, young and old, came to the witch for directions.
"I seek adventure."
"I seek wisdom."
"I need a place to feel at home."
"I feel like I need to cry, but I can't."
The witch listened, and told all where to find what they sought.
And the local library thrived.

A very good meditation on gameplay, liminality, and personal change:

Stay with it, even if it feels odd. That's what it's talking about.

Something else to remember is that these landscapes are supposed to burn. The peoples who have been here since time immemorial have always burned them carefully, and this place is full of plants and animals that expect gentle fires: redwoods, for example.

"A time of great stress, whether it’s good stress or bad stress, is not the time to set the expectation that you’re not only going to survive but also set a PR [personal record?] while you’re doing it. I forbid it; let this particular kind of self torture go." — Casey Johnston
