Any recs on an instance? I suspect m.s will federate out to most of the folks who may be experiencing radio silence from rafting that @ceejbot runs. Not planning to live on the firehose.
I am so privileged to have a secure job right now, and enough income for ongoing expenses. I am taking the coming week off work.
I had hoped, a month ago, next week would have long walks, beaches, woods, galleries, concerts, a resto and a cafe. It’s gonna have reading, meditation, quiet, as little time out of our eight hundred feet as we can be settled with.
I am still learning how to pandemic. It sucks. Here we are. Let’s survive, and live while we do that.
I do not wish death, especially horrific death, on anyone. These fuckers who don’t understand the guidelines ought to be law, sometimes I think man if they could feel the consequences of their choices directly...
But I can’t know who is at the end of their ability to cope and who is fine with rules as long as they can break ´em with impunity. I just want as many people as possible to live through this, starting with the people who have special meaning to me, and their loves.
I could get snooty and say I isolate up for:
- my mum who is in lockdown in elder care, indefinitely
- my disabled close relatives
- my loved ones with poor and/or managed mental health
- my partner’s dodgy lungs
- the ER doc in my choir
- my nurse neighbour
- my retired ICU nurse sister
- and so on
It’s not that, not mainly.
I am doing my best to follow public health leaders because they know this shit and want to save our piteous lives. All of us, if they could.
I wear a mask and gloves when I go out, and I don’t go out every day though my body craves the activity.
Enough people come within contagion distance of me that I assume I may be a carrier. I live in a dense part of a big city and there are a few clueless and assholes. If I end up dead but not taking dozens with me, it’s a consolation.
Every danger vector I have met to date is white, adult, more male-presenting than not. Most are in consensus reality.
These one week old baby raccoons were found by a shed, out in the open, crying out for their mother. The finder waited all day to see if mom would return for them but she did not. Babies this young can not go very long without mom & can not maintain their body heat on their own..
Spewing my opinion on the internet since the early 80s. Music, cats, intersectional feminism, ITSM. National Research Council give me small pay deposits.
