Thank you for linking.
So you know what I'm thinking.
It's coffee I'm drinking.
From hard work, I'm shrinking.

Tomorrow's a dream.
So for today, I'll scheme.
Filling out a paperless ream,
With no solid, fixed theme.

Followers! 

Thanks to anyone who decides to follow this account.

I have a habit of responding to all who do so, but this is a second account, and I may mess up when trying to determine who is a new follower and who is "also" following after connecting by way of my mastodon.cloud account.

It is not my intent to litter myself all over the fediverse. I will see how things go. I've made connections with several others on mastodon.art and think I'll feel at home here while NOT restricting my toots to artistic attempts. It looks like the instance won't generally mind.

Words have art in them, too.

Good luck to all of us.

Strength to the fediverse through the efforts of individuals.

*As He Ages*

Awake to pee too early.
Quickly back to the bed.
After an hour feelin' squireley
I just got up instead.

It has no social impact
It is a very simple thing.
And it really will not detract
Just a longer weekend bring.

I forgot to ask, does your current avatar image represent your tendency to overexpose your shots...or perhaps a lens cap left on?🤔 😀

Thank you for making a connection.

You have made a very good start at photog.social. I will look forward to seeing the work you post.

Your interest in software is something else. While I'll not attempt to comment on banking code, I do hope your free time work on FOSS (urging you towards copyleft, ahem.)

Have fun.
Be creative.
Be safe.

*Spring Storm*

Snow settles gently on the lawn.
There was none there today at dawn.
I spread some grass seed yesterday.
It needed moisture, so it's okay.


Are you waiting for Earth Day?

Why are you waiting?

How long will you wait?

Having fun, playing with a font
Is not like a relaxing jaunt.
But I'm thankful it isn't much worse,
Working so hard I'm put in a hearse.

undercrackers

Pronunciation /ˈʌndəkrakəz/

I encourage everyone to chip in on this crowd fund campaign. Louis Rossman, well-known Right to Repair lobbyist wants to get laws passed in his country USA for Right to Repair.

This will greatly benefit projects like coreboot and riscv-related projects.

Right to repair means: access to schematics, boardviews and other such info necessary for repair. Presently, hardware/logic info is highly restrictive. This law would be a huge legal precedent for future rights.

And as a result, I am able to save.

@strawberryfieldsforever

From yet another direction,
Another new connection,
A fan of the Fab Four!
Who could as for more.
And now you've followed me
I hope we'll often agree.

Play with the writing work as you need to. Let it be fun for you.

I hope we will bounce rhymes and such back and forth. The hashtag has worked well for several of us.

@Ritamastodon

A fresh and fine connection,
Sweet as a fresh confection.
After time enough for reflection,
If you decide to stick it out
And you've cleared away all doubt
I shall do a dance and shout.

Please do fill out more detail in your profile so we may know you better.

Of course, it might just have been one of those automated follows. I see yours is a new account. You may decide it is in your best interest to cull me from your home timeline. That's okay.

Have fun.
Be creative.
Be safe.
