Pinned toot

New avatar - my flag: the green sections represents the sun, and plants, and the black is a cog, representing sustainable technology. Together, this represents hope for the future. It has been painted onto brown burlap.

I got this from @Wewereseeds

*my, as in my interpretation/outlook.

Pinned toot

So many of us are so hard on ourselves about not doing enough to make the world a better place.

Seeing these kind of conversations in my timeline, I've suddenly just recalled something Jocelyn, a 90+ year old suffragette, said to me a few years ago:
You are no good to the revolution if you don't look after yourself first.

She is so right. And under capitalism, self-care is truly one of the most radical acts you can take.

Look after yourselves.

I'd like to follow more plant biologists, ecologists, evolutionary biologists, and environmental scientists. Searching hashtags isn't getting me anywhere. Recommendations?

I'm all about #forests and #climatechange and bounce around #ecology and #evolution.

Right now I'm working out which lodgepole pine populations might be able to successfully swap pollen to understand how local adaptation is maintained and what pollen-mediated gene flow means for adaptation under climate change.

Lately, this involves working with #otherpeoplesdata, #phenology #modeling, and lots of time in #R and #Stan.


This is a really clever photography policy: badge colors indicating levels of consent #LibrePlanet

Too tired to write, so have just boosted lots of lovely toots. Because we always need some pretty.

Off to snoozes. Night all.

One of my happy little echeverias is putting out some flower stalks! #florespondence

now that the PNW spring is finally acting like spring, the pink have bloomed

Goodnight friends! A sharp sweet wind bought welcome changes—dry empty air, lone cherry petals scattered off on their separate journeys. The few clouds left were compacted snow white bluffs isolated on a vast azure plain. New tiny wildflowers appear in unattended lawns #florespondence

Brighter days are far easier to handle—body felt so much looser. Took a walk around the block w/o much extra stress.

May we trust in the truth of each others' experiences today, & work to understand each other!

And an honorable mention were all these ferns waking up from the winter. Saw several patches like this.

I went to the arboretum today so I have a lot of for the next while. this is my favorite one though.

I took this one because it reminded me of Kehinde Wiley's paintings.

I think someone tried to reply to a toot from me, but included my phobia which I've filtered out (spid**s). I'm very phobic about them*, so I have to miss these toots. Thanks for understanding.

*just talking/writing about them can lead to nightmares. Seeing photos etc of them freaks me out and leads to nightmares too. Basically, I have to avoid.
