I'm new to solarpunk and this instance, so here's a little about me

• I'm gay
• hhhh
• basil? I got basil
• cryptid town (the town IS the cryptid)
• gender? a grey area
• talk to me about your plants
• catch me being scared about the future of the earth and everything on it including the preservation of knowledge and life as we know it being threatened by the corporations that seek to destroy the world we live in for profit
• did I mention I got basil?

long hair keeps children from physical activity and discourages (get your mind out of the gutter) bodily exploration by restricting what can and cannot be interacted with by restricting autonomy which in turn warps the psyche of the child.

tl;dr let your kids be gremlins and not your dolls, they need to romp and explore both externally and internally.

Ugh, Autumn. The beginning of a long two seasons of staring at seed packets full of promise and saying "no! too early!"

1. be nice to people and generally help them out as much as you can
2. in return, ask them to do the same

Kittens, doggos, birbs, and other animal friens? That's a boostin'
.
Yoshi, Toad, and other wholesome characters? That's a boostin'

Demanding that everyone has health care, shelter, nourishment, safety, and whatever else they need for a decent life? Oh you better believe that's a boostin'

My Lady

In a world burning dirty oils
people burnt to ashes from overwork
the gentle heat of the home
soothes the pain of the blisters
gained by neglect of self and soul

a respite is made yours through her
shaking off worries like rain off an umbrella
flour glints in a sunbeam
made perfect through its imperfectness
lazy mornings made into raucous evenings
a heart aches at the sound

worship of the small things
entwined fingers or a teapot full
we chase warmth
and so the fire is given to give

each of the things here are super easy to take care of, and also quite fast growing, in fact, they're almost yard conquering without careful management! owo

you might say that's tricking people into caring for plants through forced responsibility. and I say, yup!

I realized I never said what I was planning to do with my baby plants!

recently I read the book The Little Book of Lykke which is the sequel to the Hygge book, and it talked about community building through sharing

I'm gonna guilt trip my neighbors by giving them plants to care for...over and over again! I have basil sprouts that when bigger I'm gonna split and repot to give, working on pumpkin seeds for the same purpose, then I'm planning on spreading hollyhocks and then potato cuttings~

me, age 15: pfft. people said "may you live in interesting times" as a curse? that's stupid. i don't want to live a boring live, i hope these times are SUPER interesting!
me, age 22: put it back Put it back Put It Back PUT IT BACK PUT IT BACK

oh, and my basil's second leaves are coming in faster now, the strongest sprout's seconds' are about half the size as their regular leaves! the others aren't too far behind either!

good news! my pumpkin seeds are showing sprouts! germination is amazing, why don't we teach this in school???

bad news is that the one that looks the furthest along has a couple black spots, so oh no

so, before my furious, beautiful howling brings the moon crashing to the earth chasing the beauty of my song, how we all doin tonight

Yes, yes, come to me, my darling atrocities. Gather under my wings, my little horrors. Soon the night will come.

I want a butterfly knife but it's illegal in california.

hmph.

on the more positive side of things: my basil sprouts are getting their second set of leaves in!!! they're so tiny I couldn't get a picture, but they're there!!! and I'm so happy!!! because that means that they're actually growing up and not just dying!!!

So... You mean a generation of people who've been raised to be in constant debt which they can never pay off and have trouble affording basic things like housing, food, and electricity are the same people who find socialism attractive over capitalism? Haha wow that's wild who knew?

so like...sustainable mining. can it be done? is it even worth looking into or is it just a hard no

the no nazi policy here actually is a slippery slope, its a slippery slope to a place that doesnt suck complete and total ass, more like a slip and slide really
