Don’t forget, you've got love
You've got bravery, you’ve got trust
You’ve got bodies, responsibilities
There’s still mountains, they're pushing up from underneath
You’ve got pain, caused plenty of
It’s not so strange but now you’ve had enough
Don’t forget your bones and skin
Or where you go, or where you’ve been
-Mirah, Bones & Skin
"To hope is to gamble. It’s to bet on the future, on your desires, on the possibility that an open heart and uncertainty is better than gloom and safety. To hope is dangerous, and yet it is the opposite of fear, for to live is to risk."
Today's act of self-kindness: go ahead and mute that person you don't yet want to unfollow but who's really sticking in your craw lately. Close that tab you're hatereading. Stop checking that one blog. Your time is worth spending on nicer things, like terrible cartoons or dollar store candy!

night, folks 🌘
i've been on mastodon for nearly half a year but i'm continually inspired and humbled by the way everyone here is so gay
today we bring you the latest chapter of:
"Haircuts I Can't Really Pull Off: The mrgah Story"
Tootdon has a search server, which indexes the public toots of the federated timeline for searching. You can search the latest toots for 30 days, and those older than 30 days will be automatically deleted from the server. Also, when posting from the application, in the case of public toot, we also update the index of the search server. If you do not want to be indexed, we will exclude that account if you request @tootdon from your account.
I guess maybe not everyone will agree with this, but I believe there are limits to what a person can be learn.
So, when techies ask people to learn arbitrary tech mumbo-jumbo, they have implicitly decided that this tech thing is more important than whatever else they'll lose/skip/forget to make room for it.
Making tech easy for people is respecting the fact that they may have other priorities in life.
it's nice to see folks back after being away 💙
TIL that dan stevens of downton abbey is like pretty literary (like was on the Man Booker prize committee literary), and has recorded audiobooks of the Iliad, Odyssey, Frankenstein, Wolf Hall...
I formally state that I regret the fact that I may have expressed some snark about awk in my youth
when you really need it, awk is freaking great
it's a pleasantly convivial night in the fediverse 💚
