Word of The Day
It's about using words, of course, but, while an occasional favorite or boost happens, there's little engagement.
A two-part Challenge Proposal:
A) Post a toot using the word in any way, sentence, story, analysis, rhyme...
B) Doodlers and Artists, use the word as the subject of a #SketchChallenge
Get in on the fun of words and visual imagination.
Remember to use the #WordOfTheDay hashtag, of course.
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.

"Am I real?"
That's the way I feel
When I wake to dawn
And try not to yawn.
Then drop some small verse
Here in the Fediverse
Sometimes too rash
And with very little splash.
It isn't for fame
And surely not blame
Just seeking to express,
Relieving "that stress".
Sometimes a Star
A Boost from afar
But here is the deal,
"Are YOU real?"
If you needed an excuse, hug someone today. It's sanctioned by an official day: http://www.nationalhuggingday.com/
Therefore, here are my virtual hugs to those who want them.
I apologize for not recognizing the prior connection. I've built a large list of people I follow over time.
A "moved" instance? That's the first time I've heard of that.
Is it a new admin or really just a change of domain/server kind of thing?
Please also let me know if a follow request from me is appropriate.
Greetings to you in Wales from here in New England. Thanks for connecting. Was it automated by the instance or a well-considered choice?

asking for help, raspi, waveshare e-paper, boosts++
my roommate bought two waveshare e-paper 7.5" displays, but we couldn't get either of them to work.
they did manage to make a 2.7" display+hat work, but the 7.5" one -- nada
it seems as if the hat is responding to the signals, and even sends out a busy signal back? so maybe it is trying to refresh
but the screen stays the same. still shows the original demo image it came with.
has anyone else had trouble with it? should i just buy a new one?
So many weeks pass with...
