If you are in , I am teaching a free workshop on how to grow your own at the HandsOn Skill Fair on February 8th at 10am.

I don't mind at all that my teaching slot is in the first batch of the day, as that then sets me up to present and then attend whatever I want for the rest of the day.

Hmm #mastodon question: How does one remove stuff from your inbox? I'd like to clean it up.

I keep trying think of something low-spoon to contribute to , which is on 8th to 14th March. The problem is, all I can think of is giving away some plants/cuttings. Which I do anyway, so doing it during wouldn't be special.

If there is something people have seen me talk about on here that you think, I could do with more info about that and it would fit in with the theme, let me know!

For now, I'll keep musing over this.

Why? I mean, I know why they taught that to me, that antisemitism was not prevalent in the USA: I was a high strung child, they were parents, they didn't want me to be scared, they didn't want to be scared. But who sold them that narrative? In whose interest was it that they not connect their own lived experience of antisemitism to the country where it happened?

Everything else has melted clean in the rain now that temps are back up above freezing.

Subjective experience:
Queer spaces are on average a safer space to discuss socialism than socialist spaces are to discuss queerness.

“Most people know about fight, flight, and freeze — but another trauma response, “fawn,” is at the core of what people-pleasing is actually about.

To avoid conflict, negative emotions, and re-traumatization, people who “fawn” when triggered will go out of their way to mirror someone’s opinions and appease them in order to deescalate situations or potential issues.”
