here's a picture of the standing desk I was using this summer, when I was in vermont and could work outside
this summer switched to using a standing desk exclusively for the first time.
it seems to be be really good for me, and feeling grateful. have had stress and pain in my neck and lower back at various points. in particular switched to the standing desk when I was experiencing pain in my lower back. its now gone away, and general body pain seems to be at an all-time low
this picture of the standing desk I made in my apartment from some random things I found lying around and on the street
a part of me loves working on the computer, but for me personally I find any room I work on the computer in gets an energetic presence that makes it strange to do other things there, a sort of residue. someday I hope to work in a shack explicitly for computer work, with an inside inspired by this image by Josan Gonzales (https://josan.artstation.com/resume) and an outside surrounded by jungle and other computer-free zones

while watching birds fly around this cathedral tower,
found myself imagining Ethereum and related ecosystems as a giant cathedral that many humans had built, and the birds flying around it as people contributing to building it -- to something much larger than them and beyond any one bird --
and thought about all the cathedrals all around the world, and other giant structures humans have built at different points...
It was a very neutral image, not entirely positive or entirely negative,
then noticed it was 7:28AM and I was looking out the window and it was probably time to start the day

passing on this beautiful open call for a new art & ecology residency to the fediverse https://lios.io/ -- happening this summer in Bledow Desert, Poland
LIOS labs art & ecology residencies are programmes designed to nourish the inner and outer ecosystem. The residencies are spaces for knowledge ex-change and cultivation of regenerative body-mind practices.
This open call is especially directed to self-organized makers, artists, scientists, agents and groups of all kinds that feel the urgency of reimagining our world. We are looking for people willing to take the risk of living in the desert and working with elements as their guides in designing structures that inspire ecological living. We encourage initiatives that take in consideration local outreach, in forms of workshops and other social interventions.
The cost of 10 days residency is 185 euro. This fee includes accommodation and vegan & local food, insurance. Its a self-organized non-profit group.
enjoying thinking about signs and planets (or any archetypes even beyond astrology) as having different expressions which can come out depending on circumstance.
also interesting, the two meanings of the word aspect. according to sasportas, the different "aspects" of a planet's expression may come out depending on how a planet is "aspected" (a term in astrology which means the angles planets make between each other). love how this gives more texture than just "this" or "that"

here I am, trying to be more present in this space
not just an avatar, I am also a person (on the left, my friend @Franz on the right)
a part of me misses friends who I know are on instagram and not here
hopefully planting seeds for a new way of being online
some interests I might write about:
mycology, queer liberation, ramana maharsi, community organizing, snippets of things I am reading
long thread connecting astrology, infinite subsets and the solstice
1/ when I learned that there are as many numbers between 0 and 1 as there are numbers, I found this beautiful. here is a visual proof of this, from “Everything and More: A Compact History of Infinity” by David Foster Wallace. the rest of this thread is a shower thought connecting this with astrology.
more snippets from “ayurvedic healing”,
enjoying many news ways of thinking about how food can nourish you
