poll for Black people, boost ++ 

Poll meant at Black fedi users (newcomers and elders).

Would you be interested in joining a Black-only Masto instance* where older Fedi users could volunteer to give ✌🏾 trainings✌🏾 about online antiblack behavior, how to detect avoid/defend from them, sharing experiences + more general admin/moderation advice for people who would like to run Black/Indigenous instances?

*The instance would be completely defederated from the whole Fediverse, at least for the first weeks/months of its existence.

Between fallen leaves
The path bends but does not break
Without roots I stand

All I really want to do is sell spices and sauces that are packaged in such a way that you feel like you're buying poison from an alchemist

@TQ Ah, a wasp nest! That would explain why you were seen putting a large quantity of empty poison bottles in the recycling. 😜

Trans PSA 

@yuki Not just useful for trans people.

It also tidies away the irksome some sexual acts are about what you like, some aren't issue so people who like a particular aesthetic are a community in the same way people who like to spank are.

@TQ Very mysterious.

Has someone just commented they heard a strange noise coming from your attic and suggested you get your husband to investigate when he returns from his unexpected business trip?

Revolutionary by Colleen Cowley

“Cowley continues her tale of an America changed by the existence of magic with a blend of political thriller and romance that will appeal to fans of either.”

Sometimes I miss the halcyon days of youth when all one needed to effect systemic change was hair that made the Sun God jealous.

The air clasps my heart
Yet remains outside my grasp
Birds pass without trace

UK politics / petition against harmful insecticides 

There's a petition to continue the ban on the use of Neonicotinoids. You may have heard a buzz about this recently (excuse the pun) and it's ridiculous that we have to give a choir of "oi wot you doing with those insecticides mate" to the government about it, but here we are. Give it a sign to get it off the ground, for the bees 🐝

The Sapphire Soul by Matthew S. Cox

“Cox blends the issues that arise after the hero has saved the kingdom with the additional complexities of non-standard relationships and an engaging world of his own making.”

Other than that I live in the forest with my three cats

please boost - trying to find a place for a trans woman to leave her abusive controlling family 

I'm posting this on behalf of a 20 year old closeted trans woman who lives with her family. Her family hates her and is incredibly abusive and controlling. She really needs a place to get out to.

She's in Pennsylvania. If you're around there and can take in a person, or think you might know people who can, please pass it on.

I don't expect anything will come of this, but I'm really hoping that we can make a real difference to one person's life. She needs to get out and she deserves to be happy and to actually be able to live.

My 9-year-old daughter got way into not eating legumes recently over a can-based incident and now I worry she's becoming a Pythagorean. Do any other parents have experience with this?

Two paths through bare trees
Gusts tug me back and forth while
Mouse and deer roam free
