Study confirms it. The floating garbage patch in the Pacific is nearly all fishing gear. It's not consumer waste.

Eat less fish, their populations are crashing anyway

"Since women are raising standards and sticking to their boundaries more than they did before, there are way fewer opportunities for men to secure romantic connections."

The straight gworls are getting it TOGETHER, I'm happy for them, truly :)

I know there's a major shift around age 25 regarding brain development. As I enter my late 30s, I feel like another shift is happening.

And now I want to create a mini RPG based on Erik Erikson's stages of life. Oh dear

Looking at my weird rural life through @JoshuaACNewman's eyes helped me remind just how good my little punk ethos pockets are

living thru the 2000s, it didn't feel like the main thing people would remember it for us low rise pants yet here we are

Finished the frog and his sweater!

The knit was pretty fast, before I knit another one, I want to try a different pattern and finish the pair of socks on my needles.

More trapeze! I often forget about my hypermobility until I review video or someone comments. While it can look cool, it also means I am more prone to certain injuries and need to be especially aware of muscle engagement.

The actual mirror is streaked and foggy, which I will probably either deal with, or have a professional assess in the future.

I plan on painting the entire wood frame black, after sanding off the sponge paint and doing a really thorough wipe down of the carved filligree.

Decided to update this mirror my grandmother sponge painted in the 90s. I have no idea if I'm doing this right, but it feels good to be so hands on with a project. I'm hand sanding because I don't trust myself with a dremel and am unsure of the quality/age of the original frame.

Recording and watching back is also a necessary part of improving in aerial, dance, etc, so it wasn't just losing out on getting a social media clip. Aerial is my preferred form of meditation, self expression, and joyful movement all in one. Losing the ability to review what was happening when everything clicked feels like a multi-pronged loss.

I'm getting back into aerial and performing arts, and had the best flow during freestyle. I was really feeling the apparatus, the song, everything. Aaaand I forgot to hit record. It was disappointing.

Got me thinking about doing things just for the love of it, vs doing things to show other people. Performing arts feels especially tricky here, because the process is very much a part of the final project.

if you're reading this you should make art today

This is Feesh. I created Feesh during a trauma counseling session I facilitated.

Feesh is here to remind you that you don't have to be "good" at art to make art.
