Reading "Maintaining Disabled Bodies and Identities: Disability as Dirty Work"

"It’s not that disabled people cannot be inspiring or overcomers or warriors. It’s that, often, these are the only things they are allowed to be. It’s that there are aspects of disability/chronic illness that are painful, messy, joyful and normal that are not allowed to be normalized in the set narratives available. There are individuals who are willing (and waiting, and needing) to tell stories about the everyday experience of disability and illness, but who cannot do so effectively because, frankly, people don’t want to hear it.

There are few symbolic spaces in which disabled bodies are allowed to exist, fully and unconditionally—and as a result, few material spaces in which existing as a disabled person does not require choices to be made between maintaining one’s body and maintaining one’s identity."

In which I get up early to water the garden, and find that it's raining.

☔ ☔☔

Time for a really extended tea-drinking session while I watch it rain on my garden.

Today's gender is loneliness and the smell of floor polish.

Now my little Blue Tit story.

The first time I got a bird feeder and hung it in a tree, I watched it like a hawk(!) waiting to see my first birds. When I finally did, I shouted out excitedly to my partner, not thinking before speaking
"hey Kevin, there are Tits on my nuts"! 😂


Here are four pictures of #Dill, as a puppy, trying to figure out how chair do. What chair for. Who chair. Enjoy

Do you enjoy following someone's own posts, but they boost a lot of stuff you don't care about?

Did you know you can just mute their boosts without muting their posts?

1. Go to their profile page

2. Click on the menu button (the three dots in a column)

3. Click on "Hide boosts from..."

(Note: this only works with Mastodon accounts.)

When you haven't seen your friend in a while and next time you see em they got a lil thicker than before

when a cat comes up to you and rubs up against your leg, boost if you agree

A convenient gender-neutral way to address a group of people is “foolish mortals”
