daylight savings time
Heh, just mistyped a hashtag and accidentally contributed to the #SFFOokClub . And now I'm imagining non-human primates discussing a book.
Day 68. For #baturday, here's me aged 5 and dressed as my hero at the time.
I try to apply the lesson of https://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/anger every day. I often fail, but the days when I succeed are better.

Day 58. I just got photos online from a weekend in a cabin by a lake in NW Washington last November. Birbs and trees and hills and clouds and a couch facing a big window to take it all in. https://www.flickr.com/photos/eldan/albums/72157707026146585

Something that @email@example.com said today--in response to the weirdly racism-tainted portrayal of Joseph Sheng, which I do still think is a flaw--reminded me of this essay by Aurora Levins Morales: http://www.auroralevinsmorales.com/blog/latins-israel-and-palestine-understanding-anti-semitism

Meanwhile a lot of those reforms have to come from states and cities rather than the federal government, and many of them are currently politically toxic because of correlation with gentrification. That's something we urgently need to fix, but I can see why the GND coalition wants to push their other priorities without waiting for it.
