some #florespondence from the last couple weeks to help get through this violently windy evening
From a different place and a different conversation, and yet I find it resonates with me for so many situations in my present life.
"We cannot build something better by attacking our closest allies, by assuming everyone who disagrees is acting in bad faith, or that "we alone" can fix it. That is what abusers do.
What good is burning down the system if we build our new one from the same foundation?"
I was put in touch with the clothing company, and I picked my shirt and swim trunk outfit and apparently, it's already on its way to me.
I went with the Blue Bottles set.
when wewereseeds showed back up I got to thinking that maybe we should compile a brief oral history of sbc so that we can maybe learn from this shit show? Unfortunately I didn't spend enough time here to get various important events, so here's what I got---
Cocoron made the instance in Belfast North Ireland on the godaddy service for people who have a solarpunk ethos. I can't find a date for this but I'm guessing early 2018. When I arrived in mid 2018 the local timeline was essentially all diy projects, FOSS stuff, and cool alt. living people. While SBC has always been by and for anarchists early on this was not the emphasis as there was a minority section of liberals and libertarians. The Loomio site was set up in july of 2018 and from there I have a clearer picture of what went down.
I'm gonna write part two of this later when I'm not on my lunch break.

Today in all-staff emails, my hospital is down to a 7-day supply of masks. This is essential protective equipment for workers at high risk of exposure to a variety of nasties, not just #covid19.
DON'T BUY OR USE SURGICAL MASKS IF YOU'RE HEALTHY.
If you want to wear something to remind you not to touch your face, use a scarf or a bandanna. Or, here is a free sewing pattern for a cloth mask: https://www.craftpassion.com/face-mask-sewing-pattern/
I realize that some people are wearing masks as a way to mitigate racism while out in public. I will make & mail up to 3 masks using this pattern to PoC who would otherwise buy disposable masks for this purpose.
DM me with your address and color preferences, I have a pile of old men's shirts to use so it's mostly blue squares or blue stripes but there's a couple of dark red plaids and a green checkered one in there too.

Black out day, selfies, eye contact
Five years ago today the first #BlackOutDay happened over on Tumblr. It was wonderful getting inundated in images of black folks and taking a break from images of whiteness. Being as surrounded by whiteness as I generally am out was definitely something I needed to see at the time.
Here's an assortment of images of me from the past year for this and happy #FineFemmeFriday to everybody.
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
