So in the last couple weeks, I signed up to become a Project Gutenberg proofreader. I've started trying to read a newspaper article a day in French to increase my fluency. I am putting together plans for an art blog page. I started reading Rumi. I have started learning a little Scottish Gaelic.
People: So what have you been up to lately?
Me: Uh.... *draws a blank* not much.
I went to college for Art & Graphic Design. It was the first time I was completely surrounded by other creative oddballs and felt like I belonged somewhere.
A long time passed in the regular world where I didn't feel like that anymore.
Then I found out about Mastodon and this instance in particular.
Even though I don't post art as often as I post randomness, this is the first time in years I've had that feeling again.
Thank you all for being yourselves.
Disability-first thinking Show more
Something I've tried to internalize: all of us have or will at some point exhibit a limitation or lens commonly associated with disability or atypical neurology.
Build ramps because you might need a wheelchair someday. Be patient when someone doesn't understand you, because who hasn't been there? Make web pages accessible because you'll need it some day.
It's better to bolster a culture of accessibility as you go than to fight for it at different capacity later.
Happy Ostara and full moon, friends! Today’s Tarot Draw is the High Priestess from the Sinking Wasteland Tarot at pixeloccult.com
The High Priestess represents a link to the subconscious. She is wise, understanding, and calm. This card encourages you to pay attention to your inner voice and intuition.
I've started what might be a large series of art projects
Which is to say, I've made 3 idea sketches to work out details and probably need to make somewhere between 10 & 300 more before I can actually begin the preliminary piece
But it's going to be pretty great
That, or just the worst. But I won't know until it's done!
Food Show more
Making pizza for dinner tonight! Got the dough kneading in the bread machine, grated the mozza, and am pre-roasting onions & green peppers in the toaster oven (which I highly recommend, it prevents the wateriness veggies often add to a pizza).
Later to assemble with my little guy! He really enjoys helping.
But it's always such a big thing to realize how much work goes into the from-scratch version of something that's almost considered a convenience food, nowadays.
The cats ran out of food in their dish in the night, and this morning I found a block of butter, knocked off the counter, with the wrapper partially torn off, fuzzy with cat hair.
One of my cats (and I know which one) decided it was worth trying to supplement her diet by licking a block of dairy product.
