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.
The fur, hair, or wool of a mammal.
Early 19th century: from French, from Old French pel ‘hair’.
Penny, unable to hide as the rain began pelting down from above, scurried along the final block to her apartment. She fervently hoped her magnificent coat of sable and ermine-trimmed pelage would retain its full glory, perhaps with some help from her trusted furrier.
Is there someone here living in Malmö or Lund ? In Sweden ? I have some basic questions and I need someone who knows these places. Boost appreciated :)
Posting as a reply does not put the toot into the local or federated timeline.
If you want visibility, post in the open and add the specific person as a specific AT name (I think)

Sleeping in the woods, we might open our eyes at an unexpected sound only to gaze with night-sensitive eyes to see luminescent foxfire outside the tent.

The names in the document were so well known that it was necessary to mark out entire paragraphs in order to obscure the people involved in the debacle.
I prefer your positive poems to mine which seem to have an increasingly dour outlook.
I suspect your perspective comes from engaging regularly with sixth grade writers whose view of the world is rightfully full of hope and promise.
I miss that perspective as I sit, marinating in retirement.
Thank you for reminding me of all the good in life.
Give those kids a hug for me...at least metaphorically.

Can you figure out this week's wordie? It would be wicked wonderful if you can.

You do realize, I hope, that the equinox does not mean we all need to be equally noxious.
Re-reading the poem https://mastodon.social/@dogtrax/100757310946903470 by @dogtrax , I was reminded of graduate school during which I studied algae growing on rocks below the tidal zone of the Maine coast.
I had to keep notes of each observation. The expectation was that such notes and other collection descriptions would be durable.
My advisor expected me to use a pen filled with indelible ink, "India ink" as I recall. No erasing! To avoid making crossouts, I had to think carefully before writing.
